Endpoint:
melting point/freezing point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
25th March 2011
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Remarks:
Study conducted in compliance with agreed protocols, with no or minor deviations from standard test guidelines and/or minor methodological deficiencies, which do not affect the quality of the relevant results. The study report was conclusive, done to a valid guideline and the study was conducted under GLP conditions.

Type of method:
method to determine freezing temperature
Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
< -50 °C
Remarks on result:
other: No freezing was observed

Preliminary test

The preliminary test was performed as described. No congealing was observed down to a temperature of -50°C.

Main test

As no congealing was observed in the preliminary test, no further tests were undertaken.

Conclusions:
Under the conditions of the study, no freezing temperature was observed down to a temperature of -50°C (223.15 K). Therefore the freezing point of hexenyl-3-cis salicylate was determined to be < -50°C (233.15 K)
Executive summary:

In a GLP-compliant study performed in accordance with OECD 102, EU Method A.1 and EPA OPPTS 830.7200, the freezing point of hexenyl-3-cis salicylate was determined using the freezing temperature method. As the substance was not observed to congeal during the preliminary test, no further testing was performed. The freezing temperature of the substance was determined to be <-50ºC (233.15 K).

Description of key information

Freezing point was determined to be <-50ºC; study conducted in accordance with OECD 102, EU A.1, EPA OPPTS 830.7200; Pacella (2001a)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-50 °C

Additional information

In a GLP-compliant study performed in accordance with standardised guidelines, the freezing point of (z)-3-hexenyl salicylate was determined using the freezing temperature method. As the test substance was not observed to congeal during the preliminary test, no further testing was performed. The freezing temperature of the substance was determined to be <-50 ºC (233.15 K).
