Materials and methods

Principles of method if other than guideline:
The use of secondary sources of data is acceptable when they are based on a critical evaluation of peer-reviewed data and a consequent selection of a reliable and representative value for the property under investigation. The International Chemical Safety Cards (ICSC) are produced by the WHOs International Programme on Chemical Safety (IPCS). The introduction to the ICSC states that they report "information collected, verified and peer reviewed by internationally recognized scientists". Therefore, the values presented are acceptable as they are from a reliable secondary source of phys chem. data.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
2-methylpropane-2-thiol is a colourless liquid, at standard temperature and pressure.
Executive summary:

The data are taken from the WHO's International Program of Chemical Safety (International Chemical Safety Certificate 0019, 2004). No information on the primary source of this data or the methods used is available. However, this information is taken from an internationally peer-reviewed chemical safety cards and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint.
