Overall result: Decomposed from approximately 200°C (473 K).

As the test item decomposed, no value for the boiling temperature could be determined experimentally. Please see Attachment "Thermograms" for Thermogram data. Discussion Decomposition of the test item was confirmed using an additional, Siwoloboff-method test, whereupon the test item had become amber/brown in colour by 189°C; at 207°C, the test item had become brown in colour (with a bubble released from the Siwoloboff tube); at 214°C, the test item(and/or decomposition products) had started to boil, with bubbles being released more frequently; at 220°C, the test item (and/or decomposition products) was producing an off-white precipitate and boiling was more vigorous; at 222°C, the test item (and/or decomposition products) erupted from the sample tube, leaving behind an off-white/ beige solid.

As a result of the low rate of enthalpy change during decomposition, the onset temperature can only be approximated.

Similar thermographic profiles were obtained using air and nitrogen atmospheres; this indicates that the observed decomposition in all determinations is probably thermal and not oxidative.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The test item has been determined to decompose from approximately 200°C (473 K) at 101.23 to 101.56 kPa. As the test item decomposed, no value for boiling temperature could be determined.
Executive summary:

Method

The determination was carried out by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) using the procedure specified in ASTM E537-86, designed to be compatible with Method A2 Boiling Temperature ofCommissionRegulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008 and Method 103 of the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals, 27 July 1995.

Results

Overall result: Decomposed from approximately 200°C (473 K).

As the test item decomposed, no value for the boiling temperature could be determined experimentally. Conclusion The test item has been determined to decompose from approximately 200°C (473 K) at 101.23 to 101.56 kPa. As the test item decomposed, no value for boiling temperature could be determined.
