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 introduction to the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics states that data for physical constants have been taken from many sources, including both compilations and the primary literature. Where conflicts were found, the value deemed most reliable was chosen. Therefore, although the method used is not known, the values presented here are acceptable as they are from a reliable secondary source of phys chem. data.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The surface tension of 2-methylbut-2-ene at 25°C is 17.15 mN/m. The value quoted is for the pure liquid. This value can be used as read-across for isoamylene (2-methylbutene, CAS 26760-64-5).
Executive summary:

No information on the primary source of this data or the methods used is available. However, this information is taken from a reliable peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint. The surface tension of 2-methylbut-2-ene at 25°C is 17.15 mN/m at 25°C. The value quoted is for the pure liquid. Since isoamylene (2-methylbutene, CAS 26760-64-5) is a mixture of the two isomers, 2-methylbut-2-ene (CAS 513-35-9) and 2-methylbut-1-ene (CAS 563-46-2) and in the absence of any reliable data for isoamylene then 2-methylbut-2-ene is considered a suitable substance for read-across.
