Fish biotransformation rate constant (kM) database
More than 5,400 bioaccumulation measurements in fish for more than 1,000 organic chemicals were critically reviewed to compile a database of 1,535 kM estimates for 702 organic chemicals. Biotransformation rates range over six orders of magnitude across a diverse domain of chemical classes and structures. Screening-level uncertainty analyses provide guidance for the selection and interpretation of kM values.
Details about the database are available in the following publication:
