Results and discussion

Melting / freezing point
Melting / freezing pt.:
ca. 225 °C
Decomposition:
yes
Decomp. temp.:
ca. 245 °C

Any other information on results incl. tables

The product begins to melt at 225 °C (mean of 2 measurements). Exothermic decomposition starts at 245 °C (mean of 2 measurements). Because of the overlap of endothermic and exothermic processes, the energy measured for the exothermic process (1041 J/g; mean of 2 measurements) is less than the true decomposition energy.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The product begins to melt at 225 °C (mean of 2 measurements).
Executive summary:

The thermal behaviour of the test substance was investigated by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). The test item melts under decomposition starting from ca. 225 °C.
