The estimated logKOW was 26.85.

The BCFBAF version 3.00 programme of the EPI Suite software (EPIWEB 4.0) was used to predict either a log BCF of 0.5 (BCF of 3.16 L/kg) based on a regression estimate or a log BAF of - 0.05 (BAF of 0.893 L/kg) based on the Arnot-Gobas upper trophic model both using the smiles code because the log POW was > 8. Based on the expected kinetic behaviour in the body substantial amounts of Tri-(C18-22-alkyl) citrate will not accumulate in the body, because it will be hydrolysed, absorbed and efficiently metabolised into water soluble metabolites, which is supported by the molecular structure of Tri-(C18-22-alkyl) citrate and its physico-chemical properties. Therefore Tri-C18-22 (even numbered)-alkyl 2-hydroxypropane-1,2,3-tricarboxylate has no potential for bioaccumulation.
