Conclusions:
Physical state of d-limonene at 20 °C and 101.325 kPa : liquid.
Executive summary:

D-limonene was reported to be a liquid at 20 °C and atmospheric pressure in The Merck Index 2006 but no data are given about colour and odour of the substance.

The reliability of this result has been considered as '2 (reliable with restrictions)' because ‘The Merck Index’ is cited as a reference book containing peer reviewed data in the REACH Guidance Document R.7a.
