Conclusions:
The boiling temperature range of the substance has been determined to be: 283 - 286 °C at 1013.25 hPa.
Executive summary:

The boiling temperature was determined using EU Method A.2. and the Differential Scanning Calorimetry method. After determination of the melting point the test substance showed a second endothermic signal in the temperature range of 220 - 320 °C that can be associated with the boiling of the test substance. The lowest measured onset temperature is corrected to the standard pressure to be 283.52 °C and the highest onset temperature to be 285.72 °C. As the corrected onset temperatures in both tests deviate by more than 0.5 K from their mean value of 284.62 °C, the test item has a boiling range from 283 °C to 286 °C. No further thermal effects were observed up to the test end temperature of 500 °C. The boiling temperature range of the test substance was determined to be 283 to 286 °C at 1013.25 hPa.
