Description of key information

Based on the available information, there are no indications for a bioaccumulation potential of the test substance 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The log Kow for chloromethane is 0.91, indicating that chloromethane has a low potential for bioconcentration and will not accumulate to significant levels in aquatic organisms. The calculated bioconcentration factor for chloromethane, based on a log Kow of 0.91 is 3.16 (SRC EPISUITE v4.00).
