Conclusions:
The vapour pressure of the test material has been determined to be 8.8 x 10-10 Pa at 25 ºC using a vapour pressure balance.
A vapour pressure of 6.2E-06 Pa at 80 °C can be extrapolated based on the raw data of the study by the applicant.
Executive summary:

Vapour Pressure. 

The vapour pressure has been determined to be 8.8 x 10-10 Pa at 25 ºC, using a vapour pressure balance, Method A.4 Vapour Pressure of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008 and Method 104 of the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals, 23 March 2006.

Based on the raw data of the study a vapour pressure of 6.2E-06 Pa at 80 °C can be extrapolated.

Description of key information

The vapour pressure of the substance was determined as 8.8E-10 Pa at 25 °C (298 K) according to OECD Guideline 104 using the effusion method (vapour pressure balance). The vapour pressure at 298 K was extrapolated from the vapour pressure curve.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Vapour pressure:
0 Pa
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

Testing was started after the sample had been under vacuum for approximately 44.5 hours. Temperature and pressure readings were taken between 160 and 170 °C with a one hour dwell at 160°C between runs. Based on the average result of seven runs, the vapour pressure of the substance was determined to be 8.8E-10 Pa at 25 °C (298 K).

A vapour pressure of 6.2E-06 Pa at 80 °C can be extrapolated based on the raw data of the study.
