Description of key information

starts to decompose at 233 °C, completely sintered at 290 °C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The melting point of the substance glycine (CAS 56-40-6) was obtained from peer reviewed handbook data. The same melting point (290 °C) obtained from another handbook is supporting.
