Additional information

A guideline study following German standard DIN 38 412, part L15 investigated the acute toxicity of citronellol to fish. Test fish of the species Leuciscus idus were exposed to Citronellol for 96 hours and a LC50 of 14.66 mg/l was determined at test termination (BASF AG, 1989). A second study tested the acute toxicity of the substance in Cyprinus auratus and detected a toxic threshold concentration of 8.6 mg/l after 1 hour (Binet, 1972).
