Reference
Endpoint:
relative density
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
experimental dates: 08 Nov. to 15 Dec. 2016
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Remarks:
The study was conducted according to an internationally recognised method, and under GLP, without deviation. The substance is adequately characterised. Therefore full validation applies.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 109 (Density of Liquids and Solids)

 Determination  Temperature  Density of water (g/cm3)  Density of replacement liquid  Denstity of test item (g/cm3)
 1  19.6°C  0.998305  0.7900  1.3222
 2  20.0°C  0.998203  0.7899  1.3213

 1.3217

(SD = 0.0006)

Relative density = 1.3217

Conclusions:
The substance is much denser than water.
Executive summary:

The density of the test substance was measured under GLP according OECD 109 / EU A3 guideline, pycnometer method, using a saturated solution in petroleum as replacement liquid. Experiment was performed at 20 °C in duplicate, and the mean density was calculated.

A density of 1.3217 ± 0.0006 g/cm3 at 20.0 ± 0.4 °C was measured.

The relative density (D20/4) of the test substance was calculated to be 1.3217.

Description of key information

The substance is much denser than water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
1.322

Additional information

A fully reliable experimental study, conducted according to a recognized OECD/EC method and under GLP, is available. Therefore, it is considered as a key study, and the result is retained as key data.
