Endpoint:
melting point/freezing point
Type of information:

Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: according to EC Directive 92/69/EEC and Regulation EC/440/2008 guideline methods under GLP conditions
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.1 (Melting / Freezing Temperature)

Remarks:
Statement
Type of method:
other: Differential Scanning Calorimetry
Melting / freezing pt.:
-37 °C
Conclusions:
The thermal behaviour of 2,4,7,9-tetramethyldecane-4,7-diol was assessed by Differential Scanning Calorimetry. Melting occurs, probably as a glass transition, with an onset at nominally -37°C, and boiling occurs at nominally 278°C.
Executive summary:

The thermal behaviour of 2,4,7,9-tetramethyldecane-4,7-diol was assessed by Differential Scanning Calorimetry. Melting occurs, probably as a glass transition, with an onset at nominally -37°C, and boiling occurs at nominally 278°C.
