Description of key information

The log Kow of the known constituents of Mandarin Oil is above 4.0 for  97% of the composition. With log Kow 4.83 (predicted) or 4.38 (measured), D-limonene represents the group with a high log Kow.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Log Kow (Log Pow):
4.38

Additional information

Log Kow was estimated for the constituents of Mandarin Oil using the program KOWWIN of EPIWIN. The validity of the approach was checked by comparison of measured and predicted values for related substances. Only for the main constituent limonene the empirical log Kow was used.

The log Kow range for mandarin oil constituents was found to be 4.27 - 4.88. The percentage of known constituents with log Kow > 4 is 97%.
