Test material form:
solid: particulate/powder
Details on test material:
- Description: dark purple powder
- Solubility in the water: <= 0.412 g/L
- Melting point: > 250 °C
- Boiling point: > 250 °C
- Explosion: not explosion

Specific details on test material used for the study:
The test substance was applied to the surface of a roughened glass plate as a homogeneous layer. The plate was wetted uniformly by a solution of the substance in chloroform and dried in an inert atmosphere. For the measurement, the coated plate was hung into the thermogravimetric analyzer. The following method was used:

Any other information on results incl. tables

The test substance was considered to show ideal behaviour. Therefore the evaporation rate curve at elevated temperatures and the vapour pressure curve were derived by using a least squares method to calculate a straight Iine that best fits the measured data (Clapeyron).

The vTt value, determined by extrapolation from the evaporation rate curve, was fitted in the vapour pressure curve to obtain the PT,20 value.

The test temperatures are expressed in degrees Kelvin (K). Temperature in °C = Temperature in Kelvin -273.15.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

The vapour pressure of SXju12006 at 20°C by isothermal thermogravimetry was determined to be lower than 1.47E-8 Pa or 1.10E-10 mm Hg.
