Any other information on results incl. tables

Experiment #1

A large endothermic effect was observed between about 225°C and 345°C. This effect was probably caused by melting of the test substance. The extrapolated onset temperature of the peak is 283°C and the peak maximum is at 304°C. The peak has a shoulder at the high temperature side at 324°C. An exothermic effect started at about 345°C. This effect was probably caused by reaction and/or decomposition of the test substance. After the experiment, the sample appeared to have been molten and had lost 1.44 mg (75%) of its mass. The residue was black (original colour: white).

Experiment #2

The large endothermic melting peak was observed between 233°C and 325°C. The extrapolated onset temperature of the peak is 285°C and the peak maximum is at 299°C. A shoulder at approx. 314°C was observed. After the experiment, the sample appeared to have been molten and had lost 1.50 mg (65%) of its mass. The residue had a light-brown colour (original colour: white).

Experiment #3

The endothermic melting peak was observed between 230°C and 322°C. The extrapolated onset temperature of the peak is 285°C and the peak maximum is at 298°C. The peak has a shoulder on the high temperature side (at 314°C). An exothermic effect was observed above about 322°C. After the experiment, the sample appeared to have been molten and had lost 1.69 mg (70%) of its mass. The residue had a dark-brown colour (original colour: white).

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The melting temperature range of KY-ET was determined to be 283 - 285°C, determined by DSC in accordance with OECD 102 (1995), EU Method A.1 (1992) and according to GLP principles.
