geraniol

CAS No. 106-24-1

Formula: C10H18O
Basic Info

Geraniol is a monoterpenoid and an alcohol. It is the primary part of rose oil, palmarosa oil, and citronella oil (Java type). It also occurs in small quantities in geranium, lemon, and many other essential oils. It appears as a clear to pale-yellow oil that is insoluble in water, but soluble in most common organic solvents. It has a rose-like scent and is commonly used in perfumes. It is used in flavors such as peach, raspberry, grapefruit, red apple, plum, lime, orange, lemon, watermelon, pineapple, and blueberry.

12.1 Toxicity

  • Toxicity to fish: LC50; Species: Oncorhynchus mykiss (Rainbow trout) fingerling; Conditions: freshwater, static, 12°C, pH 7.5, hardness 44 mg/L CaCO3; Concentration: 3700 ug/L for 96 hr (95% confidence interval: 3300-4100 ug/L) /75% pure technical material
  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: LC50; Species: Daphnia magna (Water flea); Conditions: static; Concentration: 35 mg/L for 24 hr
  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

AEROBIC: Geraniol, present at 100 mg/L, reached 94% of its theoretical BOD in 4 weeks using an activated sludge inoculum at 30 mg/L in the Manometric Respirometry test OECD Guideline 301F(1). Geraniol, present at 100 mg/L, reached 53% of its theoretical BOD in 3 weeks using an activated sludge inoculum at 30 mg/L in the Japanese MITI test(2).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 100 was calculated in fish for geraniol(SRC), using a log Kow of 3.56(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is moderate(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

Using a structure estimation method based on molecular connectivity indices(1), the Koc of geraniol can be estimated to be 90(SRC). According to a classification scheme(2), this estimated Koc value suggests that geraniol is expected to have high mobility in soil.

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

13.Disposal considerations
