Description of key information

Does not significantly accumulate in organisms.

Bioaccumulation in aquatic species: fish (OECD Guideline 305 C, GLP compliance not specified): BCF range of 0.3 -1.2 L/kg indicates a very low bioaccumulation potential.

Additional information

DMF has a very low potential for bioaccumulation in aquatic and terrestrial organisms. This conclusion is based on experimental results of a bioaccumulation test (CITI, 1992) as well as on outcome of QSAR estimations, which are based on the physical-chemical properties (e.g. log Pow value) of the test substance.
