Description of key information

Due to the reliability of the available information a range for the melting point has been given of between 9.3 and 10ºC (atmospheric pressure not reported).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Due to the amount of reliable data which is available to industry from reputable handbooks and other sources testing for this endpoint has been considered to be unnecessary.

The information from handbooks and other sources presents a range for the melting point of the registered substance as follows:


Melting point (ºC)
IARC, 1987 9.9
Weast, 1989 9.84
Green & Perry, 2008 10
Sax & Lewis, 1989 9.3

The above literature sources do not give any information regarding test substance purity, methodology, test guidelines or atmospheric pressure.
