Administrative data

Description of key information

Appearance:

Chemical (+)-neomenthol physically appear as a oily liquid having menthol-like odor.

Melting point:

Freezing point of chemical (+)-neomenthol is determine to be -22 Deg C.

Boiling Point:

Boiling point of chemical (+)-neomenthol is determine to be 211.7 Deg C.

Density:

Density of chemical (+)-neomenthol is determine to be 0.897 g/cm3 at temperature 22 Deg C.

Particle size distribution:

The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is marketed or used in a non solid or granular form. Chemical (+)-neomenthol physically appear as a liquid.

Vapour pressure:

The estimated vapour pressure of (+)-Neomenthol at 25deg C was 1.022 Pa.

Partition coefficient:

Based on the available data from modelling databases using the KOWWIN V1.68 program, the partition coefficient (log Pow) value of the substance (+)-Neomenthol was determined to be 3.4.

Water solubility:

The estimated water solubility of (+)-Neomenthol at 25 deg C was 434 mg/l.

Surface tension:

Based on the data from ACD labs, surface tension for (+)-Neomenthol was predicted to be 29.7 mN/m.

Flash point:

Flash point of chemical (+)-neomenthol is determine to be 93.33 Deg C.

Auto flammability:

(+)-Neomenthol did not catch fire on being exposed to air at room temperature of 27°C pressure of 966 hPa. This indicates that (+)-Neomenthol is not auto-flammable.

Flammability:

(+)-Neomenthol does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that (+)-Neomenthol is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus (+)-Neomenthol was considered non-flammable.

Explosiveness:

The study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with explosive properties.

Oxidizing properties:

The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid.
