Description of key information

Ethyl 3,5 -dichloro-4 -hexadecyloxycarbonyloxybenzoate shows potential for bioaccumulation in aquatic organisms

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No experimental data evaluating the bioaccumulation of ethyl 3,5 -dichloro-4 -hexadecyloxycarbonyloxybenzoate (AF-366) are available. Therefore, a scientifically accepted calculation method is used for further assessment (BCFBAF v3.01, EPISuite™ (US EPA)). The estimated BCF (11.5-251 L/kg ww) and BAF (1878 L/kg ww) values indicate that AF-366 shows potential for bioaccumulation in aquatic organisms.
