Additional information

The 2,6-dimethylheptan-4-one substance has a log Kow value of 3.71, which would indicate some potential for bioaccumulation. However, it also has potential for rapid metabolism / excretion in aquatic organisms giving rise to a low predicted BCF of 130 L/kg . It has moderate water solubiity and is readily biodegradable. These properties, contribute to a low potential for bioaccumulation in the aquatic environment.
