Reference substance (positive control):
not specified
Details on estimation of bioconcentration:
Based upon a water solubility of 25400 mg/L at 25 degrees Centigrade the calculated bioconcentration factor of 2 indicates that environmental accumulation is unlikely. This BCF value suggests that bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is not important.
