Description of key information

BCF <10

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Experimental BCFs of < 10 in fish species, including Cyprinus carpio and Leuciscus idus, have been reported (Hansch and Leo 1979, Gluth et al. 1985, Freitag et al. 1985, Howard 1990). These results are expected because methanol has a high water solubility and a low octanol-water partition coefficient (log Kow = - 0.82 to – 0.64) (Hansch and Leo 1979).
