Bioaccumulation: aquatic

As reported in the summary of environmental fate and exposure in HSDB Report of Sulfamethazine (synonym of Sulfadimidine) by Scientific Review Committee low potential of bioconcentration in aquatic organism is expected for this substance based on estimated BCF of 0.8. A low BCF for Sulfadimidine is predicted also by BCFBAF v.3.01 (log BCF = 0.5; BCF = 3.162 l/kg wet-wt). As reported in the CLP Regulation (EC n.1272/2008) a BCF ≥ 500 is indicative of the potential to bioconcentrate for classification purposes and so BCF minor than 500 for Sulfadimidine is of no concern.


Bioaccumulation: terrestrial
