Executive summary:

The melting point temperature of the test substance, C16-18 TMAC (72.78% active) was determined using Differential Scanning Calorimetry according to a method equivalent to the guideline. Under the study conditions, the melting point of the test substance was determined to be 62ºC (with a range of 45 to 62ºC) (Borjesson, 2012).

Description of key information

The melting point of the test substance was determined using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC)  (Börjesson J, 2012).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
