The rate of duty will be 7.9 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for Citronellol (CAS # 106-22-9) will be 2905.22.5010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for acyclic alcohols and their halogenated, sulfonated, nitrated or nitrosated derivatives: unsaturated monohydric alcohols: acyclic terpene alcohols: other: citronellol.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
