Bioaccumulation: aquatic/sediment :

Bioaccumulation is the process by which the chemical concentration in an aquatic organism achieves a level that exceeds that in the water, as a result of chemical uptake through all possible routes of exposure. The relationship between bioaccumulation and bio-concentration is that, chemicals that have the potential to bioconcentrate also have the potential to bioaccumulate. Bioaccumulation is closely related to the Bioconcentration factor (BCF).

The estimated bioconcentration factor (BCF) for allyl acetoacetate is 3.2 which does not exceed the bioconcentration threshold of 1000. Thus it is concluded that allyl acetoacetate is not expected to bioaccumulate in the food chain because it does not exceed the BCF criteria of being bioacummulative in nature.
