Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
593 L/kg ww

Additional information

The Bioconcentration Factor (BCF) of D-glucopyranoside methyl 2,6 -dioleate was determined by calculation. This calculation was performed by the computer program from US-EPA (EPIWIN software BCFBAF v3.01). Furthermore, the whole body primary biotransformation rate estimation for fish was calculated by the same program with the notation that the bio half-life is normalized to 10 g fish at 15 °C. With this result it is possible to predict the apparent metabolism half-life in fish for three different trophic levels (lower, mid and upper). In general, the bioconcentration factor of a substance describes the accumulation potential of a substance dissolved in water by an aquatic organism.

Result: BCF = 593 L/kg wet weight

The results indicates a slight potential for bioaccumulation (BCF > 500, log Kow, but due to the high molecular weight and the low water solubility a accumulation in aquatic organisms in unlikely.
