Mean Sample 1 result: 70.5 mN/m (pH 5.6)

Mean Sample 2 result: 70.5 mN/m (pH 5.6)

Mean result: 70.5±0.5 mN/m

Overall temperature: 21.5 ± 0.5 °C

Conclusions:
The surface tension of solutions prepared at nominally 90 % saturation of test item in water was determined to be 70.5±0.5 mN/m at 21.5 ± 0.5 °C. The substance was not considered to be surface-active.
Executive summary:

GUIDELINE

The determination was carried out by a ring method, using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A.5 Surface Tension of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008 and Method 115 of the OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals, 27 July 1995.

 

RESULTS

The surface tension of solutions prepared at nominally 90 % saturation of test item in water was determined to be 70.5 ± 0.5 mN/m at 21.5 ± 0.5 °C. The substance was not considered to be surface-active.

Description of key information

The surface tension of solutions prepared at nominally 90 % saturation of test item in water was determined to be 70.5 ± 0.5 mN/m at 21.5 ± 0.5 °C. The substance was not considered to be surface-active (OECD 115 and EU Method A.5).
