Description of key information

Methyl hexanoate has low bioaccumulation potential

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No experimental data evaluating the bioaccumulation of methyl hexanoate (CAS No. 106-70-7) to aquatic organisms are available. Nevertheless, according to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex IX, column 2, 9.3.2, such a study does not need to be conducted since the substance has a log Kow ≤ 3 (log Kow = 2.34), showing low potential for bioaccumulation.
