Description of key information

Potassium is ubiquitous in the environment, occurring in minerals, soil, sediments and natural waters, and is present as a natural and essential (actively regulated) constituent in biota, plants and animals. According to the OECD SIDS (2001) on "potassium chloride (CAS# 7447-40-7)", a potential for bioaccumulation/bioconcentration cannot be identified. Thus, potassium as essential element in animals and plants is actively regulated in organisms and not expected to bioaccumulate.
