The density of the test item was calculated as 1.0097 g/ cm3 at 20.0 ± 0.2 °C, which is the mean of two independent determinations. Standard deviation shows a very good correlation of the two determinations. Therefore, the study is considered valid.

Conclusions:
The density of the test substance was calculated as 1.0097 g/ cm3 at 20.0 ± 0.2 °C and the relative density is determined as D20/4 = 1.0097
Executive summary:

The density of the test substance was measured under GLP according OECD 109 / EU A3 guideline, using the pycnometer method.

Two determinations were performed and the mean value was retained.

This result was then converted to relative density towards water at 4°C.

Mean density: 1.0097g/cm3at 20.0 ± 0.2 °C

Mean relative density (D20/4) : 1.0097

Description of key information

The density of the test item was calculated as 1.0097 g/cm3 at 20.0 ± 0.2 °C and the relative density is determined as D20/4 = 1.0097

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
1.01

Additional information

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