Additional information

The risk of secondary poisoning for birds through fish and earthworm food chains is rather unlikely for Dodecane-12 -lactam.The bioaccumualtion potential was investigated in a flow through fish test and was proven to be low (0.8 -2.6). Furthermore the log Kow is below 3. The substance is readily biodegradable (>60% in 10 day-window). The exposure to birds will therefore be low as well as the risk of secondary poisoning.
