Description of key information

The estimated bioconcentration factor (BCF) for m-Methoxyacetophenone was estimated (EPI suite, 2016) to be 1.977 L/kg, that does not exceed the bioconcentration threshold of 2000 L/kg. Thus it is concluded that test substance m-Methoxyacetophenone is not expected to bioaccumulate in the food chain because it does not exceed the BCF criteria. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
1.977 L/kg ww
