Additional information

The substance is a solid at room temperature and normal atmospheric pressure. The substance has a high boiling point of 301 °C and decomposes around 172-183 °C. Therefore, the vapour pressure is expected to be very low at normal atmospheric conditions. An estimation of the vapour pressure of the test substance was done using MPBPWIN v1.43 as supporting information for this prediction. Within the estimation model, the modified Grain method was chosen as it may be the best vapour pressure estimation method currently available. This method predicted a vapour pressure of 5.58E-05 mm Hg (0.00743 Pa) at 25 °C. Based on the low predicted vapour pressure and the high melting point of the test substance, volatilization, hence inhalatory exposure and partitioning to air are negligible.
