Description of key information

Trimethoxy(2,4,4-trimethylpentyl)silane: <-100°C at 1013 hPa (measured)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A melting point value of <-100 °C (at 1013 hPa) was determined by differential scanning calorimetry according to EU Test Method A.1. This is supported by a measured melting point value of <-100 °C (at 1013 hPa) obtained from another reliable study.
