Key result
Atm. press.:
1 013.25 hPa
Decomposition:
yes
Decomp. temp.:
>= 204 °C
Remarks on result:
not determinable

Starting the measurement the aim was to find the temperature where the test item melted. At 204 °C a small amount of the test item formed a light brown melt at the bottom of the sample tube, but most of it moved towards the upper part of the sample tube and hardened.

small amount of light brown melt at the botton of the sample tube, most of the test item moved towards the upper part of the sample
tube and hardened
Conclusions:
Based on the observations it was concluded that the test item started to decompose immediately after melting and no boiling point could be determined.
Executive summary:

A study should be performed according to OECD TG 103 and Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008, method A.2 in order to determine the boiling point of the test item by using the Siwoloboff method. At 204 °C a small amount of the test item formed a light brown melt at the bottom of the sample, but most of it moved towards the upper part of the sample tube and hardened. Based on this observation, it was concluded that the test item started to decompose immediately after melting and the boiling point could not be determined.

Description of key information

Based on the observations it was concluded that the test item started to decompose immediately after melting and no boiling point could be determined.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
