Additional information

Icos-1 -ene does not contain any hydrolysable functional groups, so will not undergo hydrolysis. Based on read across, icos-1 -ene is considered to be readily biodegradable. Due to this, the simulation tests on degradation in water, soil and sediment are not required as icos-1 -ene is not expected to persist in the aquatic or terrestrial environment.

Log BCF have been calculated on the basis of the calculated log Kow using two different QSARs that are appropriate for icos-1 -ene. The calculated log BCF are in the range 2.04 -2.64. A trend of increasing log Koc is seen across this category as carbon number increases. A log Koc of >6.63 has been read across from hexadec-1 -ene.
