Description of key information

Additional information

This endpoint was covered by read-across of a study of 1,4-bis[(2-ethyl-6-methylphenyl)amino]anthraquinone. This read-across is justified as both substances have very similar chemical structures, the main physicochemical parameters (vapour pressure, water solubility and dissociation constant) are in the same range and further all available toxicological studies for both substances revealed the same results. Therefore a read-across for other physicochemical, ecotoxicological or toxicological endpoints seems to be justified. More details about the read-across justification are displayed in a detailed document attached to the Annex of the CSR.

Bioaccumulation:

The concentration of the test substance in fish ranged from 0.37 to 1.08 µg/g (w/w) and the bioconcentration (BCF) was 2 to 5. On the basis of the BCF obtained, it is concluded that the bioaccumulation potential of the test substance in fish is low under the test condition.
