Description of key information

BCF 199 (Mytilus edulis)
log BCF 2.3 (Mytilus edulis)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A measured and a calculated value are available for bioaccumulation. In a study with the mussel, Mytilus edulis, Donkin et al. (1989) reported a bioconcentration factor as 199 with a log BCF = 2.3. The value for the calculated BCF is higher than the measured one with 1216 (log BCF 3.08) (BCFBAF version 3.00, a subroutine of the computer program EPI Suite™).
