Type of information:
other: presumably experimental
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Peer reviewed data from HSDB. HSDB database is referred to as reliable source in Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, Table R.7.1-2 Sources of physico-chemical data.
GLP compliance:
not specified
Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:
liquid
Colour:
colorless
Odour:
other: Mild odor
Substance type:
organic

Remarks:
The handbook "Toxicity of Industrial Organic Solvents" (Browning, E. 1952) is not referred to as reliable source in Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, Table R.7.1-2 Sources of physico-chemical data. The data does support the key study although no information was given on the temperature and the pressure at which the appearance was assessed.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Method: other: no data
GLP compliance:
no
Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:
liquid
Remarks:
no information on temperature and pressure
Colour:
colourless
Odour:
other: weak odour resembling that of ethyl oxybutyrate
Substance type:
organic
Conclusions:
The test substance is a colourless liquid with a weak odour. There is no information given at which temperature and pressure the appearance of the test substance was assessed, but the author of this IUCLID data set assumed that the temperature is room temperature (20-25 °C) and the pressure atmospheric pressure (around 1 bar).
