Table 1. Boiling point results for succinic anhydride

 Analysis number  Onset ( oC) measured  P measurement (kPa)  Corrected boiling point ( oC)
 1 262.1  98.49  263.5 
 2 262.0   98.49  263.4
 3 262.4  98.49  263.7 
 Mean ( oC)      263.5
Conclusions:
The boiling point of succinic anhydride was experimentally measured and reported as 263.5 °C.
Executive summary:

In a non-GLP study according to OECD 103 the boiling point of succinic anhydride has been investigated. The boiling point of the test material was determined using differential scanning calorimetry at 2 °C/min. All relevant validity criteria were fulfilled. The boiling point of succinic anhydride was determined to be 263.5 °C.
