Description of key information

The potential for bioaccumulation in aquatic organisms of 2-ethyl-2-[[(1-oxooleyl)oxy]methyl]-1,3-propanediyl dioleate (CAS-No. 57675-44-2) is assumed to be low.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A BCF was calculated to be 3.16 L/kg wet weight (BCFBAF v3.00, regression based estimate) which indicates low bioaccumulation in organisms.

Furthermore, due to a molecular mass of 928, the test substance is not readily taken up by fish, because of possible steric hindrance at passage of gill membranes or cell membranes of respiratory organs (Technical Guidance Document on Risk Assessment (TGD) Part 2 (2003), Institute for Health and Consumer Protection, European Chemicals Bureau).
