α-terpineol

CAS No. 98-55-5

Formula: C10H18O
Basic Info

Terpineol is a naturally occurring monoterpene alcohol that has been isolated from a variety of sources such as cajuput oil, pine oil, and petitgrain oil. There are four isomers, alpha-, beta-, gamma-terpineol, and terpinen-4-ol. beta- and gamma-terpineol differ only by the location of the double bond. Terpineol is usually a mixture of these isomers with alpha-terpineol as the major constituent.
Terpineols: alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and the 4-terpineol isomer; Terpineol has a pleasant odor similar to lilac and is a common ingredient in perfumes, cosmetics, and flavors. α-Terpineol is one of the two most abundant aroma constituents of lapsang souchong tea; the α-terpineol originates in the pine smoke used to dry the tea. (+)-α-Terpineol is a chemical constituent of skullcap.

If swallowed

Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Rinse mouth with water. Consult a physician.

4.2 Most important symptoms/effects, acute and delayed

no data available

4.3 Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed, if necessary

Gastrointestinal decontamination. Since there is a high risk of aspiration pneumonia, induced emesis is usually considered contraindicated in these poisonings. However, spontaneous emesis may occur due to direct irritation of the gastric mucosa. If the patient is seen within an hour of ingestion and a large amount has been ingested, gastric emptying by intubation and lavage may be considered ... . However, some studies have suggested greater rates of complications with lavage than with ipecac-induced emesis. There is no evidence that activated charcoal is helpful in these poisonings. ... /Pine oil/

12.1 Toxicity

  • Toxicity to fish: LC50; Species: Oncorhynchus mykiss (Rainbow trout); Conditions: static bioassay, 10°C; Concentration: 10-100 mg/L for 96 hr
  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: no data available
  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

AEROBIC: Utilizing both batch and continuous digesters, 99% removal of alpha-terpineol (initial concentration of 3.86 ppm) was reported when it was incubated for 168-192 hr under aerobic conditions using sewage inoculum in a biological treatment study(1). At a high initial concentration of 4000 ppm, alpha-terpineol showed no biodegradation after about 23 days under aerobic conditions when added to 50 ml of mineral salts medium and 0.2 ml of radioactive waste trench leachate inoculum(2). alpha-Terpineol, present at 100 mg/L, reached 84.6% of its theoretical BOD in 2 weeks using an activated sludge inoculum at 30 mg/L in the Japanese MITI test(3). alpha-Terpineol readily degraded in forest soil inoculum at a rate of >0.10 mg/L/hr under aerobic conditions(4).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 40 was calculated in fish for alpha-terpineol(SRC), using a log Kow of 2.98(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 alpha-terpineol can be estimated to be 80(SRC). According to a classification scheme(2), this estimated Koc value suggests that alpha-terpineol is expected to have high mobility in soil.

12.5 Other adverse effects
