Description of key information

Tris(2,4-di-tert-butylphenyl) phosphite does not significantly accumulate in organisms.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A dietary accumulation study has been carried out using Zebrafish (Danio rerio) [Ciba, 2008]. Under the experimental conditions, the test item tris(2,4-di-tert-butyl[U-14C]phenyl)phosphite was not accumulated by the test organisms within the test period of 15 days. The biomagnification factor (BMF) of the test item as measured in fish and food was always lower than 0.01.
