Description of key information

The boiling range of Hydrocarbons, C6-C7, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <5% n-hexane is 60 to 120 °C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Due to their structure and composition, UVCB’s will not have a boiling point but a distillation range, which is measured at atmospheric pressure using ASTM D 86 or ASTM D 1078 methods. A range of 60 to 120 °C covers all possible grades within this substance description if measured with the agreed method. Tests conducted demonstrate that measured values fall within these borderline values. In a study by ExxonMobil Chemical (2010) the boiling range was determined to be between 84 – 106 °C. This is supported by a study by Galp (2009) with a range of 65.6 – 93.4 °C.
