Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Quinoline should not bioaccumulate in aquatic species.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
3.8 dimensionless

Additional information

Four bioconcentration studies in aquatic organisms were found. Only one was performed according to a standard guideline and was then used as a key study. The highest BCF value obtained in this study performed on carp is 3.8. So no bioconcentration is expected.

Another study, with a validity of 4, gives a very similar value (8), in fathead minnow. In this case the BCF is based on kinetics.
