Additional information

From the octanol-water partition coefficient a bioconcentration factor can be calculated with the BCFBAF-Program. As the substance is a UVCB-substance, 2-[2-(2-hydroxyethoxy)ethoxy]ethyl 2-hydroxyethyl phthalate was used as the representative of this UVCB-substance for calculation. Taking the measured logKow of 1.6 into account a BCF of 2.9 is estimated by the program. This value is supported by the logKow, indicating that the substance has no potential for bioaccumulation.
