Bergamot oil is a Natural Complex Substance (NCS) with limonene, linalool and linalyl acetate as its main constituents (82%). As Bergamot oil consists of many constituents, there is no single value for adsorption (log Koc).

The log Koc of Bergamot 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 Bergamot oil was found to be 1.69 - 4.90.
