Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The boiling point of 4-nitro-o-xylene is 170 deg C at 960 hPa.
Executive summary:

The standard boiling point is described as the temperature at which the pressure of the saturated vapour of a liquid is the same as the standard atmospheric pressure, 101.325 kPa. Boiling point serves as an indicator of volatility, with higher boiling points indicating lower volatility at ambient temperatures.

The boiling point of 4-nitro-o-xylene is 170 deg C at 960 hPa.
