Preliminary test

From the TGA curve it could be derived that the weight of the sample decreased significantly starting at 300°C. At 357°C the sample weight has decreased by 25%. After the experiment, a dark brown molten residue remained in the sample container (original colour: white) and a brown residue was observed on the lid of the sample container. The change of the colour indicated reaction and/or decomposition of the test item.

Main tests

The DSC curve from the first experiment with a heating rate of 20°C/min showed a small endothermic peak between 150°C and 200°C. The extrapolated onset temperature of the peak was 184.08°C. According to information supplied by the sponsor, the effect was most likely obtained due to a solid-solid or phase transformation. A second endothermic peak was observed starting at 250°C. The extrapolated onset temperature of the peak was 298.20°C. This effect was most likely obtained due to melting followed by reaction and/or decomposition of the test item. After the experiment, a brown molten residue remained. To investigate the endothermic peak between 150°C and 200°C, a repeated heating cycle was applied in Experiment 2. The extrapolated onset temperature of the peak was 184.29°C. After the experiment the material seemed unchanged. Experiment 3 was performed to investigate the endothermic peak starting at 250°C. The extrapolated onset temperature of the first peak was 184.31°C and of the second peak 298.26°C. After the experiment, a white molten residue remained in the sample container. The result demonstrated that the second endothermic effect was due to melting of the test item.

To further investigate the endothermic peak between 150°C and 200°C, a repeated heating cycle was applied in Experiment 4. The extrapolated onset temperature of the peak was 183.97°C. This peak can be related to a solid-solid or phase transformation.

The melting temperature of T001310 was determined as the average melting temperature obtained from Experiment 1 and Experiment 3 and equals 298.2°C (571.4K).

According to the sponsor, the second endothermic effect observed in Experiment 1 (184.08°C), Experiment 2 (184.29°C), Experiment 3 (184.31°C) and Experiment 4 (183.97°C), derives from a

solid-solid or phase transformation.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
JNJ-150098-AAC (T001310) was determined to be 298.2°C (571.4K) by using DSC.
According to the sponsor, a second endothermic effect observed at 184.2°C (457.3K), derives from a solid-solid or phase transformation.
Reaction and/or decomposition of the test item was observed directly after melting.
