Description of key information

Exposure of sediment is unlikely, furthermore, Log Kow  (2.3) and log Koc (2) are below the trigger value of further sediment testing.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Since the physicochemical data indicate that the substance is not adsorptive (log Koc = 2) or bioaccumulative (log Kow ≤ 2.52), a significant distribution into the sediment compartment and a significant exposure of sediment organisms is not expected. Hence, information about effects on sediment organisms is not required and the equilibrium partitioning method has been used for assessing the hazard to sediment organisms.
