Dear Sid ,
There is not a standard for this as serial (RS-232 takes many forms and can also be either a DB-9 or DB-25 type connector. There are a number of DB-9 or DB-25 to RJ-45b kits available where you work our you own pinning, depend on which signals of "serial" you need. My only advice here is to keep the data "tranmit" and "recieve" (pins 2 & 3 of the serial cable connector) as one of the twisted pairs.
Here is a link to some helpful information on RS-232 serial signals and connectors

Sincerely,
Joseph Golan, RCDD
