CAS number: 5989-54-8
Boiling point of l-limonene was reported to
be between 175.5 and 176 °C. It is an experimental value but the
reliability is not assignable because the data come from secondary
The boiling point of l-limonene is
175.5-176.5 °C at 763 mm Hg.
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.
Based on the read-across from the analogue d-limonene, l-limonene is
concluded to have a boiling point of 450.6 K at 101.32 kPa.
Based on the read.across from the analogue substance d-limonene,
l-limonene is concluded to have a boiling point of 178ºC.
Based on the read-across from the analogue substance d-limonene, the
boiling point of l-limonene is estimated to be 175.5-176 °C at 763 mm Hg.
Weight of evidence: Boiling point at ca. 101 kPa : 176 - 178 °C.
In a weight of evidence approach a
melting point of l-limonene is
calculated consistent with all values
reported for the two enantiomers (d- and l-limonene) being in the same
order of magnitude.
