Description of key information

Does not significantly accumulate in organisms.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In a well documented bioaccumulation study, the BCF in the edible fraction of bluegill sunfish was determined to be <1 in all cases (Ciba-Geigy 1973). Furthermore, with a log Pow of -2.32 (at pH 6.8 and 25 °C, Ciba-Geigy 1991) an accumulation in organisms is unlikely.

Based on these data the test substance is considered as non-bioaccumulative.
