Description of key information

Accumulation in organisms is not to be expected.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The low log Kow (1.35) of 4'-hydroxyacetophenone indicates low bioaccumulation potential. According to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, a bioaccumulation study need therefore not be conducted. Additionally, the substance is readily biodegradable (ca. 90 % biodegradation after 14 days) and is not expected to persist in the aquatic environment.
