Endpoint:
appearance / physical state / colour
Type of information:
other: data from OECD SIDS
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: literature/information not available, the data, however, were evaluated in the frame of the OECD SIDS program and therefore regarded as valid
Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:
liquid
Substance type:
organic
Conclusions:
Diisopropylbenzene (m-/p-mixture) is an organic liquid at 1013 hPa and 20°C.
Endpoint:
appearance / physical state / colour
Type of information:
other: handbook value
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: peer-reviewed handbook data
GLP compliance:
not specified
Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:
liquid
Substance type:
organic
Conclusions:
m- and p-diisopropylbenzene are organic liquids at 1013 hPa and 20°C.
Executive summary:

According to the information provided in the peer-reviewed handbook, m- and p-diisopropyl benzene are organic liquids at 1013 hPa and 20°C.

Endpoint:
appearance / physical state / colour
Adequacy of study:
other information
Reliability:
4 (not assignable)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
peer-reviewed handbook data, but the data on the physical state at ambient conditions in respect to p-diisopropylbenzene (in this case solid) are in contradiction to the information provided in other reliable sources (p-diisopropylbenzene: liquid at ambient conditions)
GLP compliance:
not specified
Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:
liquid
Remarks:
m-diisopropylbenzene
Colour:
m-diisopropylbenzene: colorless
p-diisopropylbenzene: white
Substance type:
organic
Conclusions:
m-Diisopropylbenzene is a colorless organic liquid at 1013 hPa and 20°C. The data on the physical state at ambient conditions in respect to p-diisopropylbenzene (in this case solid) are in contradiction to the information provided in other reliable sources (p-diisopropylbenzene: liquid at ambient conditions). Therefore this information is regarded as invalid.
