Description of key information

The determination of the melting range of 400160 was conducted according to OECD GL 102 and EU A.1 under GLP compliance.
The melting range was -44.5°C to -32.3°C under atmospheric pressure.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Due to the nature of the test item a melting range and not a specific melting point was determined.

A pre-test was performed to determine the test range. Therefore, the main test was started at -80°C and the aluminium block with the capillary tube filled with test item was warmed to room temperature until melting started. The temperature was noted at which the first signs of melting of the test item could be observed. When the substance was completely melted, the temperature was noted again.

The mean value of the melting range was -44.5°C to -32.3°C at atmospheric pressure.
