Remarks on result:
other: The substance decomposes below the boiling point

The value of boiling point was determined visually. The preliminary study and measurements were performed under atmospheric pressure of 1008.3 hPa. The preliminary study was carried out in order to determine the boiling temperature range of the substance (233.0 -244.0 °C), but the test sample decomposed below the boiling point (temperature range: 178.0-223.0 ºC).

Three series of measurements were performed in the temperature range 200–400°C. Together with temperature increase, the test item in outer capillary grows dark (from about 223.0 ºC). As a result of the gradual heating and in the whole test temperature range, single bubbles at different intervals give off. Continuous air bubbles movement from a capillary was observed. For various temperatures, the sample in the capillary was of dark color. Received decomposition temperature range was 223.0–224.0 °C. From visual observation it is evident that the substance decomposes below the boiling point under atmospheric pressure of 1008.3 hPa.

Conclusions:
The test substance decomposes before boiling. The decomposition temperature was determined to be in the range of 223-224 ºC at 1008.3 hPa.
Executive summary:

A determination of the boiling point temperature was performed in accordance with EU method A.2 and OECD Guideline 103. GLP study. Decomposition was observed in the temperature range of 223 -224 ºC. It was evident that the test item decomposes below boiling point under atmospheric pressure of 1008.3 hPa.

Description of key information

Key study: EU method A.2, OECD Guideline 103. GLP study. The test substance decomposes before boling in a temperature range of 223-224 ºC at 1008.3 hPa.
