Test conditions

Details on estimation of bioconcentration:
The BioConcentration Factor (Log BCF) was estimated by a regression equation developped by Lyman (1990) and based on flow-through laboratory studies. The equation used was: Log BCF = 0.76*Log Kow - 0.23, with Log Kow = 1.47.

Results and discussion

Bioaccumulation factor
Type:
BCF
Value:
7.76
Details on results:
The Log BCF has been estimated to be 0.89 (BCF=7.76).

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

BCF = 7.76 has been estimated on the basis of the equation: Log BCF = 0.76*Log Kow - 0.23, with experimental Log Kow = 1.47 Log .

Considering this result, guaiacol is not considered to bioaccumulate.
