Any other information on results incl. tables

The number-based concentration of particles with sizes below 100 nm (smallest feret diameter) is 79%. The median (D50) of the particle size is 59,4 nm.

The material is therefore classified as “nano” according to the definition of nanomaterial 2011/696/EU.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The particles have a median aspect ratio of 1,8:1.
The shape is “spherical”.
The material is assigned to the “spheroidal” shape category.
