CAS number: 18794-84-8
Farnesene is essentially insoluble in water. At the limit of solubility
it is not expected to cause effects on aquatic organisms, following
acute or chronic exposure. It does not meet the criteria to be
considered readily biodegradable but experimental data shows a clear
potential to degrade in the aquatic environment.
Farnesene is insoluble in water, has a log Kow > 4 and is not readily
biodegradable. It does however show a clear potential to degrade in the
environment. Chronic exposure of aquatic species to saturated
concentrations of a structural analogue farnesane did not result in
toxicity at the limit of solubility.
Farnesene is not classified for aquatic toxicity based on no toxicity
following acute exposure and no evidence of chronic effects in aquatic
species at the limit of water solubility.
