Description of key information

The estimated bioconcentration factor (BCF) for 3-diethylaminophenol is 16, which does not exceed the  bioconcentration criteria of 2000.

Other Weight of evidence studies indicates that bioconcentration factor (BCF) varies between 12.24 to 21.37 From this BCF values it is concluded that 3-diethylaminophenol is not expected to bioaccumulate in the food chain

Additional information

Bioaccumulation is the process by which the chemical concentration in an aquatic organism achieves a level that exceeds that in water as a result of chemical uptake through all possible routes of exposure. The relationship between Bioaccumulation and Bioconcentration is that,chemicals that have potential to bioconcentrate also have potential to bioaccumulate.Bioaccumulation is closely related to bioconcentration factor (BCF). The estimated bioconcentration factor (BCF) for 3-diethylaminophenol is 16, which does not exceed the bioconcentration criteria of 2000.

Other Weight of evidence studies indicates that bioconcentration factor (BCF) varies between 12.24 to 21.37. From this BCF values it is concluded that 3-diethylaminophenol is not expected to bioaccumulate in the food chain
