Reference
Endpoint:
surface tension
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
29 August 2017 to 10 January 2018
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 115 (Surface Tension of Aqueous Solutions)
GLP compliance:
yes
Type of method:
OECD harmonised ring method
Key result
Surface tension:
>= 39.8 - <= 40.4 mN/m
Temp.:
21 °C
Conc.:
0.9 g/L
Conclusions:
The surface tension of the substance in water at about 90% of its saturation concentration was found to be 40.1 +/- 0.3 mN/m which means that this substance is a surfacting agent, in line with its use mainly in lubricants.

Description of key information
