Additional information

Based on a Weight-of-Evidence approach combining the outcome of several studies, there is evidence that 1,3-dichloro-4-nitrobenzene is not readily biodegradable (Bayer, 1981; Hoechst, 1983, MITI, 1995).

The bioaccumulation potential of 1,3 -dichloro-4 -nitrobenzene is characterized by a mean bioaccumulation factor of 1026 (logBCF= 3.0) (Deneer et al., 1987).
