Additional information

The CRC Handbook (Lide 2008) is peer reviewed and is considered reliable and suitable for use as a key study for this endpoint. The supporting study (Merck Handbook (O'Neil 2006)) is also a peer reviewed handbook and reports a value of 6.47 ˚C ( 279.62 K) and supports the value reported in the key study.
