Weight of evidence from six peer reviewed handbooks give a melting point of 94-96 oC
Executive summary:

Weight of evidence from six peer reviewed handbooks give a melting point of 94-96 oC

Description of key information

Weight of evidence of a number of peer reviewed handbooks gives a mp of 94 -96 oC, 95 oC average, supported by many literature values

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
95 °C
