Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the density of the test substance using a pycnometer according to OECD Guideline 109, EU Method A.3 and US EPA Guideline 830.7300. Under the conditions of the study, the test substance was determined to have a density and relative density of 0.967 g/cm3 and 0.967, respectively, at 20°C (Baltussen, 2017).

Description of key information

The density was determined using a pycnometer according to OECD Guideline 109, EU Method A.3 and US EPA Guideline 830.7300 (Baltussen, 2012).
