A valid study was conducted to determine the
partition coefficient of (-)-limonene by Reverse Phase High Performance
Liquid Chromatographic method similarly to OECD Guideline 117.
Under the test conditions, the partition
coefficient, log Kow, of (-)-limonene was determined to be 4.38 (S.E. =
0.05) at 37 °C. The calculated log Kow values of (-)-limonene were 4.36
(fragment method), 4.83 (atom /fragment contribution method) and 2.94
Key study: Test method similar to OECD 117: Log Kow determined using
HPLC method : 4.38 at 37°C.
The key value for log Kow of l-limonene
(4.38) was experimentally determined by an HPLC method similar to OECD
The result is supported by other
experimental values on l-limonene and on d-limonene, by read-across, its
enantiomer which have the same physical properties.
