Principle of Method

Determination of the mass at a given temperature of a volume of the material contained in a density bottle (pyknometer) and determination of the volume of the latter by determining the mass of the corresponding volume of water at the same temperature. The density is obtained by dividing the mass of material by its volume.

Conclusions:
The density of test chemical was determined following OECD Guideline 109 and according to theIS 4730 : 1994 (Reaffirmed 2010) – Method for Determination of Density of Liquids (First Revision) using glass pyknometer. The mean density of test chemical was determined to be 1.4162 g/cm³ at 20°C and 968.1 hPa.
Executive summary:

The density of test chemical was determined following OECD Guideline 109 and according to theIS 4730 : 1994 (Reaffirmed 2010) – Method for Determination of Density of Liquids (First Revision) using glass pyknometer. The mean  density of test chemical was determined to be 1.4162 g/cm³ at 20°C and 968.1 hPa.

Additional information

The density of test chemical was determined following OECD Guideline 109 and according to theIS 4730 : 1994 (Reaffirmed 2010) – Method for Determination of Density of Liquids (First Revision) using glass pyknometer. The mean  density of test chemical was determined to be 1.4162 g/cm³ at 20°C and 968.1 hPa.

Based on available data from reliable sources such as authoritative database and handbook ,the density of test chemical was determined to be in the range of 1.395 g/cm3 to 1.424 g/cm3.

Other supporting study from authoritative database indicates that the density of test chemical was determined to be 1.422 g/cm3 at 20 degree C.

As the data from experiment has K1 reliability and the test was performed using OECD guidelines which has the value of mean density as 1.4162 g/cm³ at 20°C and 968.1 hPa thus considered as key study for the chemical safety assessment.
