Description of key information

Bioaccumulation: aquatic/sediment

Hydrocarbons, C12-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, aromatics (2-25%) is a hydrocarbon UVCB. Standard tests for this endpoint are intended for single substances and are not appropriate for this complex substance. However, this endpoint is fulfilled using quantitative structure property relationships for representative hydrocarbon structures. The BCFBAF 3.01 model is a well characterised and generally accepted bioaccumulation prediction model, used by the USEPA, the OECD and recommended by ECHA. The SMILES input data for the BCFBAF 3.01 model is obtained from the PETRORISK Product Library (see OECD QSAR Toolbox report in 'Attached full study report' and PETRORISK report attached in IUCLID section 13).

The calculated BCF of Hydrocarbons, C12-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, aromatics (2-25%) ranges from 3.68 - 6299.66 L/Kg.
