Description of key information

TFE can be expected to have a low potential for bioaccumulation (log Kow = 1.21). In addition, the substance is a gas and direct and indirect exposure of the aquatic compartment is unlikely.The US EPA BCBAF™ model predicts a BCF of 2.939 l/kg for TFE.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
