Description of key information

BCF was determined as 6.082 (Arnot-Gabos method) by EPIWIN BCFBAF version 3.01 (EPIWIN, 2012).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
6.082 dimensionless

Additional information

BCF was determined as 6.082 by EPIWIN BCFBAF version 3.01 using the Arnot-Gabos method. The predicted BCF value was based in part on the measured Log Pow of 8.42 at 35 ºC (EPIWIN, 2012).

Bioaccumulation is considered to occur primarily in the upper trophic levels as the water solubility is very low (0.248 mg/l at 20 ºC) and the Log Pow is very high (8.42 at 35 ºC). The Arnot-Gabos method was therefore selected as the key value.
