The bioconcentration factor BCF of cumene was calculated using BCFBAF (v 3.00). The calculation yielded a BCF of 94.69 L/kg wet wt taking into account the measured log Kow of 3.5. Based on the result, a low potential for bioconcentration is to be expected, which is confirmed by an experimental BCF of 35.5 found in a poorly documented bioconcentration study with fish

(C. auratus) (Ogata et al., 1984).
