Description of key information

Significant accumulation in organisms is not to be expected.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No studies are available for the bioaccumulation assessment of the test item. Log Kow values for different degrees of ethoxylation were calculated using EPI Win v4.10. For the lowest EO degree at hand (1EO) a log Kow value of -1.2 was calculated whereas a log Kow value of -2.3 was calculated for the highest ethoxylation degree of 5EO (BASF SE 2012). Regarding these values, accumulation of the test substance in organisms is not to be expected. Therefore, and for reasons of animal welfare, a study on bioaccumulation is not provided.
