Additional information

Due to the high molecular weight of the substance a crossing of biological membranes is not expected. In addition, according to the Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter R.11 (ECHA, 2012), a molecular weight higher than 1100 g/mol is an indicator that the aquatic BCF of the respective substance is lower than 2000 L/kg. This is confirmed by a calculated BCF/BAF of 0.89 L/kg (BCFBAF v3.01 Arnot Gobas, upper trophic level). Thus, in accordance with column 2 of EC 1907/2006 Annex IX, a study on bioaccumulation in aquatic species does not need to be conducted.
