Description of key information

Density [dodecamethylcyclohexasiloxane]: 0.98 g/cm³ at 20°C 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
0.98

Additional information

A density value of 0.98 g/cm³ was reported at 20°C in a handbook which has been subject to peer-review and in which the original data sources are traceable. A density value of 0.96g/cm³ was determined at 25°C using the interpolation from a temperature-density correlation by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AlChE). Both results are considered to be reliable and these two sources of data are used as weight of evidence for this endpoint.

A density value of 0.97g/cm³ was reported at 20°C in a secondary literature. The original reference was not available for review and no further information is available. The reliability of this result is not assignable.
