Overall mean calibration corrected surface tension = 72.5 mN/m

Harkins-Jordan* corrected value = 71.5 mN/m

Conclusions:
The test substance is not considered to be surface active (surface tension >60 mN/m).

Description of key information

71.5 mN/m (90% satuarated aqueous solution at 20°C) (OECD 115, EC A.5)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Surface tension:
71.5
