Additional information

Weight of Evidence approach from peer reviewed handbook data. According to The Merck Index (peer reviewed handbook data), the melting point of the test item is 35-36ºC. According to the 'Handbook of Environmental data on organic chemicals' (peer reviewed handbook data), the melting point of the test item is 34 -35ºC. According to the ' CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics. 91st ed' (peer reviewed handbook data), the melting point of the test item is 34.5ºC. All data sources agreed in the value for the melting point, in a range from 34 to 36ºC, and were sufficient to fulfil the information requirements. The value of 34.0ºC was chosen as a worst-case scenario.
