Abstract The document summarizes information on chemical characteristics, including water solubilities, half-lives, and partition coefficients; human health concerns; wildlife and aquatic organism partitioning factors; and food chain multipliers. A brief profile of the chemical's toxicity, mode of action, and potential for bioaccumulation is also included. Daily intake levels of concern for the protection of human health were compiled, including estimated values for carcinogenic endpoints (slope factors) and noncarcinogenic endpoints (reference doses) for the oral ingestion exposure pathway, and EPA's carcinogenic classifications are provided. Factors affecting partitioning of the chemical in relation to wildlife and aquatic organisms, food chain multipliers (biomagnification factors), toxic effects and mode of action, and other information were compiled from various sources.
