Mean Sample 1 result: 68.0 mN/m (pH 5.5)

Mean Sample 2 result: 67.0 mN/m (pH 5.6)

Mean result: 67.5±0.5 mN/m

Overall temperature: 21.5 ± 0.5 °C

Conclusions:
The surface tension of solutions prepared at nominally 1.1 g/L of test item in water and diluted to 90 % saturation was determined to be 67.5±0.5 mN/m at 21.5 ± 0.5 °C. The substance was not considered to be surface-active.
Executive summary:

GUIDELINE

The determination was carried out by a ring method, using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A.5 Surface Tension of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008 and Method 115 of the OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals, 27 July 1995.

 

RESULTS

The surface tension of solutions prepared at nominally 1.1 g/L of test item in water and diluted to 90 % saturation was determined to be 67.5±0.5 mN/m at 21.5 ± 0.5 °C. The substance was not considered to be surface-active.
