Additional information

Citronella oil is a Natural Complex Substance (NCS) with citronellal, geraniol and citronellol as its main constituents (70%). As Citronella oil consists of many consituents, there is no single value for adsorption (log Koc).

The log Koc of Citronella oil was estimated by calculation. Log Koc values for the known constituents were estimated using the QSAR KOCWIN v2.0 according to the Molecular Connectivity Index method. The range of log Koc values for the known constituents of Citronella oil was found to be 1.69 - 4.30.
