Description of key information

Amides, C12-18 (even-numbered) and C18-unsatd., N-hydroxyethyl is expected to have low bioaccumulation potential.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (terrestrial species):
56.8

Additional information

Amides, C12-18 (even-numbered) and C18-unsatd., N-hydroxyethyl is expected to have a low terrestrial bioaccumulation potential based on a log Pow of 4.3, a calculated BCF of 56.8 and the fact that the substance is readily biodegradable and has an effective metabolism in mammals (efficient formation of innocuous polar metabolites which are finally rapidly excreted (primarily) in urine).
