Description of key information

Bioconcentration is unlikely to occur (estimated log BCF=0.5).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
3.16 L/kg ww

Additional information

The bioconcentration potential of N,N-dimethylbutylamine was estimated with the BCFBAF program (v3.01) that is part of the EpiSuite (v4.10) software owned by the US EPA. The estimated log BCF = 0.50 (BCF = 3.16 L/kg wet weight). A similar result (log BCF = 0.54 (BCF = 3.44 L/kg wet weight)

was obtained with another US EPA QSAR software (TEST v4.1). It is therefore concluded that the bioconcentration potential of N,N-dimethylbutylamine is low (GUBDH, 2012).
