Description of key information

Accumulation in organisms is not to be expected.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
3.2 L/kg ww

Additional information

The partition coefficient octanol/water of 4 -acteylmorpholine was determined experimentally to be log Kow -0.81 (Dir. 92/69/EEC, A.8; BASF SE, 2003; Study No. 03L00275). In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX, the study need not be conducted since the substance has a log Kow less or equal than 3.

The log BCF was estimated to be 0.5 using the BCFBAF Program v3.00 of EPI Suite v4.00 (BASF SE, 2011).

Based on these results it can be concluded that accumulation in organisms is not to be expected.
