Farnesene is poorly soluble in water (ECOSAR estimate 11 µg/L) and is
not expected to hydrolyse. It is not persistent, as evidenced by up to
61% degradation in 28 days in an OECD 301B study. This is supported by
modelled data (EpiSuite v 4.11, BIOWIN v4.10 and BioHCWin v1.01), that
predict farnesene will not be readily biodegradable but will be
ultimately biodegradable in a period of weeks to months.
Modelled BCF values using CAESAR/Vega 1.0.6 are in the range of 457 -
1479. Based on predicted values of less than 2000 L/kg wet-wt, farnesene
is not expected to bioaccumulate.
Farnesene's fully hydrogenated analogue, Farnesane, has been tested in
chronic fish and daphnia studies and no toxicity occurred at the limit
of water solubility.
