Hazard - P - B 0 T - Risk Cannot be excluded
Levobupivacaine is the S(-)enantiomer of the racemate bupivacaine.
Underlying data for P, B, T and risk are from Fass.
Fass environmental information
Fass environmental information for Chirocaine (levobupivacaine) from AbbVie (downloaded 2019-07-09).
Persistence: No data.
Bioaccumulation: "Log D (Octanol Water Coefficient) = 2.54 ( pH 7.4) (25 ° C); Log D (Octanol Water Coefficient) = 2.75 ( pH 7.4) (36 ° C). Based on the octanol water coefficient (log D) at pH 7.4 of 2.54, Levobupivacaine has low potential for bioaccumulation.
Toxicity: No data.
Risk of environmental impact of Levobupivacaine cannot be excluded, since there is not sufficient ecotoxicity data available.
