Description of key information

The aromatic sulphonic acids have very low logPow values and are therefore not expected to be sorbed onto sediments. These substances are readily biodegraded and therefore will not accumulate. A significant distribution into the sediment compartment is not predicted and exposures to sediment dwelling organisms is expected to be comparable to pelagic species.  Hence sediment toxicity testing is not warranted.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment
