Selected VP: 5.34E-010 Pa (Modified Grain Method)

Subcooled liquid VP: 1.72E-007 Pa (25 deg C, Mod-Grain method)

On the basis of the vapour pressure of 5.34 x 10 -10 Pa selected in the software output, a limit value of <0.000001 Pa at 25°C is chosen.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

The calculated vapour pressure is 5.34E-10 Pa at 25 °C, given as a limit value of <0.000001 Pa at 25 °C.
Executive summary:
The vapour pressure was estimated to be 5.34 x 10 -10 Pa at 25 °C based on the experimental melting point of 255 °C. The result is reported as a limit value of <0.000001 Pa at 25 °C.
