Description of key information

Additional information

No experimental data are available. According to REACH regulation, Annex IX, section 9.3.2., column 2, no study regarding bioaccumulation needs to be conducted if the substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation (for instance a logKow < 3). 2 -dimethylaminoethanol has a measured logKow of -0.55, thus possessing no potential to accumulate in organisms. For completeness, a calculation for the bioconcentration factor (BCF) of the substance was performed using the US-EPA computer tool EPIWIN (software BCFBAFv3.00). The low bioaccumulation potential is thereby confirmed with a result of 3.162 L/kg wet weight (Chemservice S.A., 2010, revised 2019). The terrestrial bioaccumulation potential is no mandatory requirement under REACH for 2 -dimethylaminoethanol.
