  • A reductionist mechanistic model for bioconcentration of neutral and weakly polar organic compounds in fish

    The bioconcentration factor (BCF) of neutral and weakly polar organic chemicals in fish is modeled using independently calibrated models of chemical partitioning (φsys, KFW), respiratory exchange (k1, k2 = k1/KFW), and biotransformation (kM) as BCF = φsysKFW/(1 + kM/k2). Existing k1 models tend to overestimate for chemicals with logKOW  ...
