Description of key information

The potential for bioaccumulation of the substance is low - Estimated BCF equal to 22 L/kg whole body w.w.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
22 L/kg ww

Additional information

The log Kow of 4.83 indicate that the substance may slightly bioaccumulate.

The BCF of the substance was estimated using accepted calculation methods:

CAESAR BCF v. gives a value of 22 L/kg ww.

EPA BCFBAF v.3.01 gives a value of 714 L/kg ww.

It is therefore concluded that the potential for bioaccumulation of diisobutyl hexahydrophthalate (DIBE) is low.
