Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Description: pale yellow crystalline solid
- Batch number: 7X18A
- Storage conditions: approximately 4 °C in the dark over silica gel
Key result
Boiling pt.:
> 400 °C
Atm. press.:
100.91 kPa
Decomposition:
no

No boiling of the test item was observed up to the maximum temperature of 400°C. Two endothermic effects were observed:

- 225°C (499 K): loss of impurity/solvent:

- 287°C (561 K): melting of sample

Conclusions:
The test item has a boiling point of > 400°C under the conditions of this study.
Executive summary:

The study was performed accorrding to OECD no. 103 using the Differential Scanning Calorimetry method and performing two measurements.

No boiling of the test item was observed up to the maximum temperature of 400°C. Two endothermic effects were observed:

- 225°C (499 K): loss of impurity/solvent:

- 287°C (561 K): melting of sample

In conclusion, the boiling point was found to be > 400°C (673 K) (mean of two runs).

Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Study period:
March - May 2008
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Justification for type of information:
Pyromellitic dianhydride is not stable under certain conditions (e.g. in water). Therefore, a read-across is done to the corresponding decomposition product Pyromellitic acid for several endpoints. The present supporting test with PMA serves as bridging study.

Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Description: white powder
- Batch number: 8M30N

Key result
Boiling pt.:
> 400 °C
Atm. press.:
101.1 kPa
Decomposition:
no

As a significant residue remained on completion of each determination, it was confirmed that the boiling point of the test material was greater than 400°C (>673 K). It was noted that the melting point of the test material was lower than that determined during the definitive melting point test. Possibly the degree of conversion to the anhydride was reduced at the higher heating rate used for this test, since the exposure time to elevated temperatures was reduced.

Conclusions:
The test item has a boiling point of > 400°C under the conditions of this study.
Executive summary:

The study was performed accorrding to OECD no. 103 using the Differential Scanning Calorimetry method and performing two measurements. No boiling of the test item was observed up to 400°C. In conclusion, the boiling point was found to be > 400°C (561 K) (mean of two runs).

Description of key information

Pyromellitic dianhydride is not stable under certain conditions (e.g. in water). Therefore, a read-across is done to the corresponding decomposition product Pyromellitic acid for several endpoints. The present supporting test with PMA serves as bridging study.

Boiling point Pyromellitic dianhydride (PMDA)

The study was performed accorrding to OECD no. 103 using the Differential Scanning Calorimetry method and performing two measurements.

No boiling of the test item was observed up to the maximum temperature of 400°C. Two endothermic effects were observed:

- 225°C (499 K): loss of impurity/solvent:

- 287°C (561 K): melting of sample

In conclusion, the boiling point was found to be > 400°C (673 K) (mean of two runs). In a supporting study similar or equivalent to OECD no. 103, the boiling point was determined to be 397-400°C.

Boiling point Pyromellitic acid (PMA / read-across)

The study was performed accorrding to OECD no. 103 using the Differential Scanning Calorimetry method and performing two measurements. No boiling of the test item was observed up to 400°C.In conclusion, the boiling point was found to be > 400°C (561 K) (mean of two runs).
