Materials and methods

Principles of method if other than guideline:
The use of secondary sources of data is acceptable when they are based on a critical evaluation of peer-reviewed data and a consequent selection of a reliable and representative value for the property under investigation. The International Chemical Safety Cards (ICSC) are produced by the WHOs International Programme on Chemical Safety (IPCS). The introduction to the ICSC states that they report “information collected, verified and peer reviewed by internationally recognized scientists”. Therefore, the values presented are acceptable as they are from a reliable secondary source of phys chem. data.
