Volatile components were lost between 110 and 126 °C.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The test item has been determined to decompose at approximately 171°C at 98.7 kPa. As the test item is decomposed, no value for boiling temperature could be determined.
Executive summary:

The determination of the boiling temperature was carried out using differential scanning calorimetry and a procedure based on the liquid bath method, designed to be compatible OECD guideline 103.

During visual observation of the test item during heating the color was shown to darken throughout heating, with the first note of a change of color at 171 °C. There is however no corresponding peak in the DSC traces, only a gradual increase in the baseline. The endotherm temperature registred was approximately 118 °C, and this has been attributed to the loss of water from the sample. Moreover, the decomposition temperature was registred at 171 °C.

The test was performed in compliance with GLP standards, and with guidelines studies, therefore the results are reliable.
