Description of key information

Additional information

Calcium carbonate is an inorganic ionic solid for which an octanol/water partition coefficient cannot be reliably determined. Calcium carbonate dissociates into the calcium Ca2+and carbonate CO32-ions at environmental pH. These are essential to all living organisms (flora and fauna) and their intracellular and extra-cellular concentrations are actively regulated. Bioaccumulation is thus not expected.
