Reference
Endpoint:
vapour pressure
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Limited study summary, no guideline and no GLP.
Qualifier:
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The vapour pressure was measured by comparative ebulliometry with mercury and water as the reference substances. The critical temperature was determined in the rapid heater, the temperature being measured with a platinum resistance thermometer and the automatic a.c. bridge used in the ebulliometric work. The vapour pressures between 2.8 and 202 kPa (with water as reference) were fitted by equation (temperature range 348 - 481 K). The vapour pressure at 298.15 K was extrapolated from the equation.
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:

Conclusions:
The vapour pressure is determined to be 169 Pa at 25 °C.
Executive summary:

The vapour pressure was measured by comparative ebulliometry with mercury and water as the reference substances. The critical temperature was determined in the rapid heater, the temperature being measured with a platinum resistance thermometer and the automatic a.c. bridge used in the ebulliometric work. The vapour pressures between 2.8 and 202 kPa (with water as reference) were fitted by equation (temperature range 348 - 481 K). The vapour pressure at 298.15 K was extrapolated from the equation.

The vapour pressure is 169 Pa at 25 ℃.
