Additional information

The density of  (±)-menthone (CAS No. 1074-95-9 ) was determined following OECD guideline 109 and according to the Indian standard method for determination of density of liquids [IS 4730:1994 (Reaffirmed 2010)] The mean density of the (±)-menthone was determined to be 1.116 g/cm³ at 20°C and 977.7 hPa.

Other supporting data from Sax's Handbook of Dangerous Industrial Materials indicates the density of (±)-menthone as 0.897g/cm³ at 15 deg C, which is close to the selected key value.
