Results

 

Thermal Stability

The test item showed no thermal effects up to a temperature of 300 °C.

 

Dynamic method: Vapour-liquid equilibrium (VLE)

The vapour pressure was measured in the temperature range of 159.4 to 190.7 °C. The measured vapour pressure values together with the measured temperatures are listed in the table below.

From the measured data points of the vapour pressure curve, the constants A, B and C of the Antoine equation were calculated:

 

Antoine equation

 

Log10 ρ = A +  B / ( C + θ )

 

A = 10.5113

B = -3090.34

C = 273.15.

 

 

Final Results

The vapour pressure of the test item was calculated by extrapolation of the measured vapour pressure curve for the temperatures 20, 25 and 50 °C, according to Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.4.
