BCFBAF Program (v3.01) Results:

==============================

SMILES : NCCCCCC

CHEM : 1-Hexanamine

MOL FOR: C6 H15 N1

MOL WT : 101.19

--------------------------------- BCFBAF v3.01 --------------------------------

Summary Results:

Log BCF (regression-based estimate): 1.03 (BCF = 10.6 L/kg wet-wt)

Biotransformation Half-Life (days) : 0.44 (normalized to 10 g fish)

Log BAF (Arnot-Gobas upper trophic): 1.07 (BAF = 11.8 L/kg wet-wt)

Log Kow (experimental): 2.06

Log Kow used by BCF estimates: 2.06

Equation Used to Make BCF estimate:

Log BCF = 0.6598 log Kow - 0.333 + Correction

Correction(s): Value

No Applicable Correction Factors

Estimated Log BCF = 1.026 (BCF = 10.62 L/kg wet-wt)

Conclusions:
The estimated bio concentration factor (BCF) for Hexylamine is 10.62 L/kg wet-wt which does not exceed the bioconcentration threshold of 2000.Thus it is concluded that Hexylamine is not expected to bio accumulate in the food chain.
Executive summary:

The estimated bio concentration factor (BCF) for Hexylamine is 10.62 L/kg wet-wt which does not exceed the bioconcentration threshold of 2000.Thus it is concluded that Hexylamine is not expected to bio accumulate in the food chain.
