Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-15.3 °C

Additional information

An experimental study was conducted, with sufficient information despite could not be fully compared to OECD/EC guideline, on the dehydrated substance (purity not specified); the result, obtained by the capillary method, is supposed to be a true melting point (solid/liquid transition).

Supporting litterature data from five handbooks are consistent with the previous result. As the substance is liquid at ambient temperature, data may be considered as freezing points rather than true melting points.

The retained value is the mean of the above values.
