Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

BCF (aquatic species):
3.162 L/kg ww

Additional information

According to Column 2, Annex IX (specific rules for adaptation) the study does not need to be conducted since the substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation (logKow<3). A calculated value for risk assessment has been reported.

The BCFBAF method classifies a compound as either ionic or non-ionic.  Ionic compounds include carboxylic acids, sulfonic acids and salts of sulfonic acids, and charged nitrogen compounds (nitrogen with a +5 valence such as quaternary ammonium compounds).  All other compounds are classified as non-ionic.


Training Dataset Included:

466 Non-Ionic Compounds

61 Ionic Compounds (carboxylic acids, sulfonic acids, quats)

All compounds with a log Kow of less than 1.0 are assigned an estimated log BCF of 0.50 (same as in BCFWIN).


Ionic compoundsare predicted as follows:

log BCF  =  0.50    (log Kow  <  5.0)

log BCF  =  1.00    (log Kow  5.0 to 6.0)

log BCF  =  1.75    (log Kow  6.0 to 8.0)

log BCF  =  1.00    (log Kow  8.0 to 9.0)

log BCF  =  0.50    (log Kow   >  9.0)
