Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

QSAR determinations of the BCF for the compoents are < 500 L/kg

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with Annex IX column 2 of the REACH Regulation, a study for bioaccumulation does not need to be conducted if the substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation. The experimentally derived Log Pow value for the substance has been identified as > 9.4. ECHA Guidance on Information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R11: PBT assessment (page 28) on determination of bioaccumulation potential states: at very high log Kow (>6), a decreasing relationship between BCF and Log Pow is observed. Apart from experimental errors in the determination of BCF values for these very hydrophobic chemicals, reduced uptake due to the increasing molecular size may play a role as well. Moreover, the experimental determination of log Kow for very hydrophobic chemicals is normally also very uncertain due to experimental difficulties. Ideally the results of several model predictions should be considered. QSAR calculations of BCF for the components determined that the BCF < 500 L/kg. Therefore the substance is not considered to bioaccumulate.
