Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
683 L/kg ww

Additional information


The key value mentioned is the value for D-Limonene (geometric mean of three QSAR estimates), which was obtained from the disseminated REACH registration dossier for this substance (CAS number 5989-27-5) available on the ECHA website. D-Limonene is the lead constituent for the environmental risk assessment of this UVCB substance based on the DPD+ analysis (1). Hence, a separate endpoint summary for the key value of D-limonene for this endpoint is included in this dossier for use in the environmental risk assessment.
