Instrument: Buchi B545 melting point instruments


1. Reference standard Vanillin (theory): 81.7 +/- 0.5 °C

2. Reference standard Caffeine (theory): 235.9 +/- 0.5 °C

Triple determinations were performed and gave the following results:

Vanillin: 81.7 / 81.5 / 81.2 °C, mean = 81.5 °C

Caffeine: 236.0 / 235.9 / 235.9 °C, mean = 235.9 °C

Measurement: (duplicate)

Alcohols, C2-33, manuf. of, by-products from overheads: 244.4 / 244.4 °C

Average: 244.4 °C

No colour change in the test substance was observed.

Boiling point: 244.4 °C.
Executive summary:

Hydrocarbons, C12-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, alkenes is measured according to OECD 103.

The boiling point was determind to be 244.4 °C at atmospheric pressure.
