Additional information

The bioaccumulation potential of the test substance 2-ethylanthraquinone was determined in a fish bioconcentration study as part of the Japanese National Toxicology program. The BCF values were in the range of 560 to 1350. During the depuration phase, the test substance concentration in the fishes quickly decreased. The substance does not fulfil the trigger value of BCF > 2000 L/kg given in ECHA Guidance, Chapter R.11, for bioaccumulation is therefore not regarded to fulfil the B-criterion.
