Description of key information

Additional information

L-Menthol has not been tested for hydrolysis under environmental conditions as it has shown to be readily biodegradable. The half-life of menthol in air has been assessed by using computational methods assuming pseudo-first order hydroxyl radical attack of menthol by hydroxyl radicals which resulted in an estimated half-life of 16 hours in air. Consequently, persistence of menthol in the atmospheric compartment is not expected.
