Description of key information

The BCF in earthworms was estimated with the equation from Jager (1998) which is incorporated in the EUSES model and is applicable to substances with a log Kow value ranging from 1-8: BCFworm = (Fwaterworm + Flipidworm*Kow)/RHOworm where Fwaterworm = 0.84, Flipidworm = 0.012 and RHO worm = 1000. Entering the log Kow value of 2.6 for alpha-Terpineol results in a BCFearthworm of 5.6 L/kg w.w.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (terrestrial species):
5.6 L/kg ww
