Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
217 °C

Additional information

In the experimental study (Defitraces 2010), the mean corrected boiling point of the test item was determined on 2 assays at 113.4 ± 0.5 °C, by DSC.


This temperature does not correspond to the boiling point of Guetol itself but to the evaporation of a light component or to the slight degradation of the sample, as confirmed by other techniques (CRTL/DEPT/HSEM/2010/0100,20/07/2010, Température d’ébullition atmosphérique du Guétol. Mesure en VSP).


It is therefore preferable to refer to the boiling points of Guetol given in the literature, selected as key studies, with values from 216.5 to 217°C at atmospheric pressure; these values are in agreement with the boiling point observed in the industrial process: 123°C at 58,5 hPa.
