Description of key information

The melting point was determined to be < -75°C as per OECD 102.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-75 °C

Additional information

The key value of melting point was determined by using differential scanning calorimetry (OECD 102) in accordance with GLP. Due to inconclusive results from the intended method, a freezing point method was implemented instead. This method deviated from the OECD method for freezing method.

Titanium tetrakis(2 -ethylhexanolate) is hydrolytically unstable. When it comes in contact with water or moisture, a complete hydrolysis will take place with no significant reaction products other than 2 -ethylhexanol (2 -EH) and hydrated titanium dioxide. Because of rapid hydrolysis, read-across data on the melting point of 2-EH, -70 deg. Celsius, released from the substance is used as a key value in exposure assessment when relevant (peer-reviewed secondary source; Lide 2008).
