Details on estimation of bioconcentration:
Equation used to make BCF estimate: Log BCF = 0.77*Log Kow - 0.70.
Log Kow used: 1.32 (experimental, from Hansch et al., 1995, SRC)

Results and discussion

Any other information on results incl. tables

Estimated Log BCF = 0.316, BCF = 2.072

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

BCF = 2.072 has been estimated on the basis of the equation: Log BCF = 0.77*Log Kow - 0.70 and experimental Log Kow=1.32.

Considering this result, guaiacol is not considered to bioaccumulate.
