Description of key information

Selected physico-chemical parameters and representative for environmental fate: 

Terpene hydrocarbon alcohols have the following constituent types of substances: Solely hydrocarbons-terpene type, Alcohol-type, Ketone-type and Ether-type all having a saturated or unsaturated cyclic hydrocarbon backbone. For Environmental fate, the solely hydrocarbons present the more extreme values and data on Terpinolene is used for the risk assessment. 

The Koc is calculated to be 4050 L/kg based on the Koc-QSAR for 'predominantly hydrophobics' incorporated in EUSES, with the log Kow of 4.33 as input. Model input: log Kow = 4.33. The Koc-QSAR 'predominantly hydrophobics' in EUSES was selected: Koc = 1.26*Kow^0.81
