The vapour pressure of the test item calculated by interpolation and extrapolation of the measured vapour pressure curve for the temperatures 20, 25 and 50 °C were 0.13 (interpolated), 0.19 (interpolated) and 1.07(extrapolated) Pa, respectively.

 

Considering that the vapour pressures measured are inside the applicability domain of the method and given the good linearity of the measurements, the results are considered as valid.

Conclusions:
Low volatility (based on volatility bands criteria for occupational exposure (Chesar / ECETOC TRA), < 500 Pa).
Executive summary:

The vapour pressure of the test substance was measured under GLP according to OECD 104 / EU A4 guideline by an effusion method: Knudsen cell.

Prior to the experiment, thermal stability was checked by DSC: No thermal effects could be observed up to the maximum test temperature of 300 °C.

Seven measurements were performed in the temperature range of 10-41 °C.

 

The vapour pressure of the test item calculated by interpolation and extrapolation of the measured vapour pressure curve for the temperatures 20, 25 and 50 °C were 0.13 (interpolated), 0.19 (interpolated) and 1.07(extrapolated) Pa, respectively.

 

Description of key information

Low volatility . Results at  20, 25 and 50 °C were 0.13 (interpolated), 0.19 (interpolated) and 1.07(extrapolated) Pa, respectively. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Vapour pressure:
0.19 Pa
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

A fully reliable experimental study, conducted according to a recognized OECD/EU method, and under GLP, is available. It is considered as a key study. The result is retained as key data.
