Endpoint:
bioaccumulation in aquatic species: fish
Type of information:
(Q)SAR
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
data from handbook or collection of data
Justification for type of information:
other: calculation
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
other: calculation
Key result
Type:
BCF
Value:
34 dimensionless

The bioconcentration factor of 34 was estimated from the experimental log octanol/water partition coefficient of 2.32 using an appropriate regression equation. The result indicates that p-chloroacetophenone will not bioconcentrate in fish and aquatic organisms (HSDB).

Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Conclusions:
The calculated bioconcentration factor is reported to 34.
Executive summary:

Although the calculation method is not reported, the data were taken from a peer-reviewed database and are thus considered to be reliable with restrictions.
