Koc at 20 °C:
2 413

Additional information


The key value mentioned above is the value for L-Limonene,which was obtained from the disseminated REACH registration dossier for this substance (CAS number 5989-54-8) available on the ECHA website. Hazard information for L-Limonene is based on D-Limonene. L-Limonene is the lead constituent for the environmental risk assessment of this UVCB substance based on the DPD+ analysis (1). Hence, a separate endpoint summary for the key value of L-limonene for this endpoint is included in this dossier for use in the environmental risk assessment.
