The transpiration method is used to determine the VP for materials having 10-3 Pa to 103 Pa. The substance has a VP of 0.233 Pa and is within the domain of the model. This method is highly accurate with a relative standard deviation of < 5%, based on triplicate measurements. The use of flow controlling sampling techniques allows for accurate measurements over many orders of magnitude of VP values under a variety of conditions.

Conclusions:
The vapour pressure of OTNE was investigated using the Transpiration method equivalent to OECD TG 104, gas saturation method, in a reliable non-GLP study. This is a dynamic method and has recently been updated for use of low volatile substances. A precisely known volume of air is sampled through a trap containing the sorbent Tenax TA. The adsorbed compound is desorbed and eluted onto a GC column where it is identified and quantified using a calibration curve. The mass of analyte per unit volume collected is used to calculate the vapour pressure. The vapour pressure of OTNE was found to be 0.233Pa at 23°C.

Executive summary:

The vapor pressure of OTNE was determined according to peer-reviewed methodology using the purge & trap method. The vapor pressure was found to be as 0.233 Pa at 23°C.
