Description

Phenethyl alcohol, or 2-phenylethanol, is the organic compound that consists of a phenethyl group (C6H5CH2CH2) group attached to OH. It is a colourless liquid that is slightly soluble in water (2 mL/100 mL H2O), but miscible with most organic solvents. It occurs widely in nature, being found in a variety of essential oils. It has a pleasant floral odor.

  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

In a 2-week biodegradation screening test (MITI test) using 2-phenylethanol (100 ppm) and an activated sludge inoculum, 87% of BOD was removed(1).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

A BCF of 6 was estimated for 2-phenylethanol (SRC), using its log Kow of 1.36(1,SRC) and a recommended regression-derived equation(2). According to a recommended classification scheme(3), this BCF value suggests that 2-phenylethanol has a low potential for bioconcentration in fish and aquatic organisms(SRC).

Product

The material can be disposed of by removal to a licensed chemical destruction plant or by controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing. Do not contaminate water, foodstuffs, feed or seed by storage or disposal. Do not discharge to sewer systems.

Contaminated packaging

Containers can be triply rinsed (or equivalent) and offered for recycling or reconditioning. Alternatively, the packaging can be punctured to make it unusable for other purposes and then be disposed of in a sanitary landfill. Controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing is possible for combustible packaging materials.
