Description of key information

The BCF of cyclopentane was calculated to be 70.8.  The calculated BCF of 70.8 indicates that cyclopentane does not greatly bioaccumulate in the lipids of ecological receptors. The log Kow of 3 was used to calculate the BCF that is reported for cyclopentane.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
70.8

Additional information

The QSAR used to calculate the BCF of cyclopentane followed the TGD guideline and so is deemed suitable for the assessment of cyclopentane bioconcentration. The calculated BCF of 70.8 indicates that cyclopentane does not greatly bioaccumulate in the lipids of ecological receptors.
