Turpentine

CAS RN: 8006-64-2

Soil Adsorption / Mobility

Turpentine typically contains alpha-pinene (59%), beta-pinene (24%) and other isomeric terpenes(1). Using a structure estimation method based on molecular connectivity indices(2), the Koc of alpha- and beta-pinene can be estimated to be 1000(SRC). According to a classification scheme(3), this estimated Koc value suggests that alpha- and beta-pinene are expected to have low mobility in soil.
