Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

The viscosity of dimethyl sulphide is 0.70 mPa.s at 20°C at a constant sheer rate of 2000 l/s.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

0.284 mPa · s (dynamic)
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

Fieseler (2009) is a GLP study following OECD guideline 114, though deviations from the study plan include a higher range of sheer rates and a shorter time of preparation at thermostat temperature, due to the substance volatility. Neither of these are presumed to have an effect on the study. The study is considered reliable and suitable for use for this endpoint.

The results supported by Lide (2008). No information on the primary source of these data or the methods used is available. However, this information is taken from an internationally peer-reviewed handbook and can be considered reliable and suitable for use for this endpoint.

This is supported by Clayton (1981), which has limitations in reporting; no information on test methods used is available in the publication. This is also supported by a Safety Data Sheet (Elf Atochem 1990). No data are available regarding the methods used or the test conditions. The data are taken from a published safety data sheet, with notable limitations in reporting.
