Description of key information

Bioconcentration and bioaccumulation of zinc neodecanoate, basic are most accurately evaluated by separately assessing the fate of its constituents zinc and neodecanoate.


Zinc is an essential element which is actively regulated by organisms, so bioconcentration/bioaccumulation is not considered relevant for inorganic zinc substances.


Based on a reliable bioconcentration test of neodecanoic acid, a mean bioconcentration factor (BCF) < 225 L/kg wet fish weight was determined after 14 days of exposure. Thus, neodecanoic acid does not appear to have a high potential to bioaccumulate in aquatic ecosystems. A similar low potential may be assumed for soil organisms.
