Endpoint:
melting point/freezing point
Type of information:
other: data from OECD SIDS
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: literature not available, the data, however, were evaluated in the frame of the OECD SIDS program and therefore regarded as valid
Principles of method if other than guideline:
data from peer-reviewed database
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
other: No data
Melting / freezing pt.:
-63 - -17.1 °C
Conclusions:
The melting points of m-diisopropylbenzene and p-diisopropylbenzene are -63°C and -17.1°C, respectively.
Executive summary:
The melting points of m-diisopropylbenzene and p-diisopropylbenzene are reported to be -63°C and -17.1°C, respectively.
Endpoint:

Remarks on result:
other: m-diisopropyl benzene
Melting / freezing pt.:
-17 °C
Remarks on result:
other: p-diisopropylbenzene
Conclusions:
The melting points of m- and p-diisopropyl benzene are -63.1 and -17°C, respectively.
Executive summary:

In the peer-reviewed handbook, the melting points of m- and p-diisopropyl benzene are reported to be -63.1 and -17°C, respectively.

Endpoint:
melting point/freezing point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
other information
Reliability:
4 (not assignable)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: peer-reviewed handbook data, but the melting point reported in respect to p-diisopropylbenzene (+64°C) is in contradiction to the information provided in other reliable sources (-17.1°C) and therefore regarded as invalid
GLP compliance:
not specified
Melting / freezing pt.:
-63 °C
Remarks on result:
other: m-diisopropylbenzene
Melting / freezing pt.:
64 °C
Remarks on result:
other: p-diisopropylbenzene
Conclusions:
The melting points of m- and p-diisopropylbenzene are reported to be -63°C and 64°C, respectively. The reported melting point in respect to p-diisopropylbenzene (+64°C), however, is in contradiction to the information provided in other reliable sources (-17.1°C) and therefore regarded as invalid.
Endpoint:
melting point/freezing point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
other information
Reliability:
4 (not assignable)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: peer-reviewed handbook data, but the melting point reported in respect to m-diisopropylbenzene is significantly lower as the values reported in other reliable sources and therefore regarded as not assignable
GLP compliance:
not specified
Melting / freezing pt.:
-105 °C
Remarks on result:
other: m-diisopropylbenzene
Conclusions:
The melting point of m-diisopropylbenzene is reported to be -105°C. But the melting point reported is significantly lower as the values reported in other reliable sources and therefore regarded as not assignable.
