Description of key information

The estimation by calculation for the BCF is 3.16 L/kg, reflecting that quinic acid has a low accumulation potential.

Additional information

The given BCF, BAF and Biotransformation half-life estimations from the models for quinic acid show, that quinic acid has a low accumulation potential. Nevertheless, the EPA recommends that EPI Suite is a screening-level tool and should not be used if acceptable measured values are available. However, empirical studies have not been done, so that we consider a BCF of 3.16 L/kg, BAF of 0.893 L/kg and Biotransformation half-life of 0.00221 days.
