Description of key information

Calculated BCF is 251 L/kg wet weight

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
251 L/kg ww

Additional information

EPA BCFBAF model

The BCF of the substance was estimated to be: 251 L/kg ww

The BAF of the substance was estimated to be: 1.14 L/kg ww.

The Bio Half-Life was estimated to be: 0.226 days (normalized to 10 g fish at 15 deg C).

EPA T.E.S.T. model

The BCF of the substance was estimated to be: 6.03

The highest value of BCF was selected for the chemical safety assessment.

It is therefore concluded that the potential for bioaccumulation of trioctyl benzene-1,2,4-tricarboxylate (DIPLAST TM 8) is very low.
