Additional information

No reliable results are available for the bioaccumulation of synthetic rutile in terrestrial organisms. Therefore, read-across is proposed to available monitoring data for elemental Ti-concentration in plants and corresponding soil or sediment samples. Reliable BSAF factors for plants vary between 0.0002 to 0.0008 kg/kg and point to the absence of bioaccumulation of Ti in plants. These results reflect equilibrium conditions for Ti in the environment, regardless of the speciation of Ti.
