Conclusions:
The vapour pressure of the test item was calculated by extrapolation of the measured vapour pressure curve for the temperatures 20 and 25 °C.
- for 20 °C: 3.648E-12 Pa
- for 25 °C: 2.615E-11 Pa
Executive summary:

A study was conducted according to OECD TG 104 and Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 method A.4 in order to determine the vapour pressure of the test item. The vapour pressure was determined at temperatures from 40 to 130 °C using the effusion method (Knudsen cell). The used temperatures were below the melting point range of the test item (204 to 205 °C according to literature). For the evaluation the vapour pressure values in the range of 80 to 120 °C were used. The vapour pressure of the test item was determined by extrapolation of the measured vapour pressure curve for the temperatures 20 °C with 3.648 x 10-12 Pa and 25 °C with 2.615 x 10-11 Pa.
