Key result
Remarks on result:
not determinable
Remarks:
Using a linear heating rate melting point was not observed from room temperature up to 500 °C.

Based on the thermograms neither the cooling phase nor the second heating phase had any signal to melt. In addition, the very low enthalpy values for a sharp peak around 120 °C, the relative big loss of mass and unchanged appearance of test item do not indicate melting.

The endotherm and exotherm peaks in the thermograms do not imply phase transition from a solid to liquid state. Using a linear heating rate melting point was not observed from room temperature up to 500 °C

Conclusions:
The test was carried out at normal atmospheric pressure. Using a linear heating rate melting point was not observed from room temperature up to 500 °C.
Executive summary:

For the determination of the melting point or melting range, differential scanning calorimetry method was used. A small amount of the test item was inserted into the furnace of the device and the melting point was determined based on measuring the heat flow while raising the temperature. The heat flow in and out of a sample and a reference sample was measured as a function of temperature as the sample was heated. When the sample undergoes a phase transition, the corresponding change of enthalpy gives a departure from the base line of the heat flow record. The difference in energy input necessary to maintain identical temperatures between the substance and the reference material is recorded. The measurement signal is the energy absorbed by or released by the sample.

The test was carried out at normal atmospheric pressure. Using a linear heating rate melting point was not observed from room temperature up to 500 °C.
