Accumulation in organisms is not to be expected.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to REACh regulation 1907/2006 ANNEX IX Column 2 bioaccumulation studies do not need to be performed if the potential for bioaccumulation is low (for instance a log Pow < 3). Tert-butanol, the organic hydrolysis product of sodium 2 -methylpropan-2 -olate, has a log Pow of 0.35 and has therefore a low potential for accumulation.
