Description of key information

The melting point of the test substance is 31°C at atm. pressure.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
31 °C

Additional information

A literature review was conducted. In a weight of evidence approach the literature values were evaluated.

REAXYS reports the melting point of 1-(vinyloxy)octadecane to be 31 °C at atm. pressure. The Syracuse Research Coperation, Physical Properties Database reports the melting point of 1-(vinyloxy)octadecane to be 30 °C at atm. pressure.

The Yaws' Handbook of Physical Properties for Hydrocarbons and Chemicals database reports the melting point of 1 -(vinyloxyoctadecane to be also 30 °C at atm. pressure.

Three independent literature sources report the melting point to be in the same range. Thus, the melting point of 31 °C at atm. pressure from REAXYS which is a peer reviewed data base was chosen as key value.
