Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
The melting range of DBMC is cited in the MITI report with reference to various data sources such as The Merck Index, Lange's Handbook of Chemistry, Encyclopaedia Chimica etc., thus no detailed information on the determination of the melting range is available.
Reason / purpose:
reference to same study
Reason / purpose:
reference to other study
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The melting range is a compilation of the values derived from different data sources, thus no details on materials and methods used are available.

Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: The temperature range for the melting point of DBMC was cited in the OECD SIDS report from the Beilstein database. As no further details on the determination of this melting range is available, the information is reliable with restrictions.
Reason / purpose:
reference to same study
Reason / purpose:
reference to other study
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The melting range for DBMC was cited from the Beilstein Data compiling different data sources. No details available.
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
other: not available
Melting / freezing pt.:
130 - 131 °C

This temperature range was selected from seven available data sources/scientific documents indicating values of 129 - 131.21 °C. Two values were neglected because the data sources were patents.

Conclusions:
The melting point of DBMC lies in the range of 130 - 131 °C.
Executive summary:

The melting point of DBMC lies in the range of 130 - 131 °C as cited in the OECD SIDS report. This range is determined by selection of various studies/scientific documents cited in the Beilstein database.
