Description of key information

The substance L-Menthol is moderately soluble (100-1000 mg/l); the experimentally determined solubility is 0.4 g/l (0.375 - 0.410 g/l tested with different qualities according to OECD 105 - shake flask method).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:
0.397 g/L
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

The 3 different qualities of L-Menthol synthetic tested according to test guideline OECD 105 "Flask method" resulted in: 0.397 g/l, 0.375 g/l and 0.392 g/l at 20 °C. L-menthol is moderately soluble (100 -1000 mg/l)

One quality of L-Menthol Natural was tested according to TG OECD 105 "Flask method" at 25 °C resulting in water solubility of 0.410 g/l.
