Appearance of the sample

Before the test the appearance of the test item was white powder. After the experiments the test item was blackened and melted in the crucible.

Results

Using a 10 °C/min heating rate, the melting point of the test item was determined to be in the range of 109 - 117 °C (382 - 391 K).

Observation

109

partially melted

110

most of it was colourless melt, on the top of the melt solid, crystalline was present

112

colourless, unevenly distributed melt, partially moved towards the upper part of the sample tube

115

the melt became light pink

120

the melt became darker pink

130

the melt became light brown

Conclusions:
The melting range of the test item was determined to be 109 - 117 °C (382 - 391 K).
Executive summary:

A study was conducted according to OECD TG 102, Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 method A.1 and EPA OPPTS 830.7200 to determine the melting point/range of the test item using differential scanning calorimetry. The test item was weighed into an aluminium crucible under an inert atmosphere (nitrogen). Three tests with about 3 – 5 mg of the test item were performed. As reference crucible, an empty aluminium crucible was used. The substance is a white powder at ambient conditions. The crucible was heated from room temperature to 500 °C with 10 °C/min heating rate. The melting range of the test item was determined to be 109 to 117 °C at atmospheric pressure (1013 hPa).

Description of key information

Using a 10 °C/min heating rate, the melting point of the test item was determined to be in the range of 109 - 117 °C (382 - 391 K).

Key value for chemical safety assessment
