Additional information

The results are taken from the WHO IPCS International Chemical Safety Cards (WHO, 1999). 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 chemical safety card and can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint.

This is supported by the CRC Handbook (Lide 2008). This is a reliable peer reviewed handbook and can be considered reliable and suitable for use for this endpoint.

This is supported by the Handbook of Environmental Data on Organic Chemicals, 3rd Edition (Verschueren 1996). No information on the test methods used is available in the publication. As it is not clear whether or how the data reported were peer reviewed, these data can only be used as supporting data.

This is supported by the Physical and Thermodynamic Properties of Pure Chemicals Data Compilation (Daubert 1989). No information on the test methods is available in the publication. As it is not clear whether or how the data reported were peer reviewed, this data can only be used as a supporting study.
