Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: The value is taken from the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia (peer reviewed data cited in HSDB but the method was not described).
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The method was not described, the data is issued from an excerpt of the Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology (data available on HSDB).
GLP compliance:
not specified
Surface tension:
33.83 other: dynes/cm
Remarks on result:
other: The temperature and concentration were not indicated

= 0.03383 N/m

Executive summary:

Surface tension was 33830 mN/m, as compared to around 79 mN/m for water. Therefore the test item is not surface active.
