Description of key information

Melting point of tar acids, methylphenol fraction is < -13 °C (read-across)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

There is no experimental data for melting point of this substance available. The value for melting point is obtained by using read-across estimation based on the available data for cresol isomers (m, p, o-cresol) and two other types of cresol mixtures (mix-cresol CAS 1319 -77 -3 and reaction mass of m- and p-cresol EC no. 906 -151 -7). The key value is taken from the study of reaction mass of m- and p-cresol due to the principle of melting point for mixtures.
