Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the melting point of the test substance, C16 TMAC (Purity: 95.6%) using the differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), according to a method similar to OECD Guideline 102. Under the study conditions, the melting point was determined to be 99ºC (with a range of 90 to 99ºC) (Börjesson, 2012).

Description of key information

The melting point of the test substance was determined using the differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) according to a method that is similar to OECD Guideline 102 (Börjesson, 2012).

Key value for chemical safety assessment
