Description of key information

Amides, C8-18 and C18-unsatd., N,N-bis(hydroxyethyl) is expected to have low bioaccumulation potential based on its ready biodegradability and available toxicokinetic data.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
65.36 L/kg ww

Additional information

Considering that the weighted average log Pow of amides, C8-18 and C18-unsatd., N,N-bis(hydroxyethyl) is 3.75 at 20°C, the BCF (calculated based on the log Pow of 3.75) yielded a value of 65.36 L/kg w/w and amides, C8-18 and C18-unsatd., N,N-bis(hydroxyethyl) is readily biodegradable and has an effective metabolism in mammals, it can be assumed that amides, C8-18 and C18-unsatd., N,N-bis(hydroxyethyl) has a low aquatic bioaccumulation potential.
