TGA EXPERIMENT (PRELIMINARY TEST)

From 50°C upwards the weight of the sample decreased significantly. 25% weight loss at 346°C. 56% weight loss at 550°C. After the experiment, a black residue remained in the sample container (original colour: yellow/brown). The change of the colour indicated reaction and/or decomposition of the test item.

 

DSC EXPERIMENT

DSC curve: see illustration below. A broad endothermic peak between 25°C and 225°C was observed. The effect was most likely obtained due to evaporation of impurities in the test item. The endothermic peak between 225°C and 346°C was due to reaction and/or decomposition of the test item. After the experiment, a brown residue remained in the sample container.

 

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The substance has no melting temperature. Decomposition starts at > 225°C.

Executive summary:

In a GLP study according to EC A.1, OECD 102 and OPPTS 830.7200 it was concluded from a DSC experiment that reaction and/or decomposition of the test item started at temperatures above 225°C. Melting of the test item was not observed below the temperature at which reaction and/or decomposition started. The substance has no melting temperature.
