First and second determination:

Boiling point was not exploitable due to perturbations on the thermogram. The crucible was visually checked after the determination: The lid hole was obstructed by the test item. By opening the crucible, some test item left in the crucible but no sign of decomposition was observed.

Third determination: (atmospheric pressure: 1017.2 hPa)

Initial boiling point was observed at 250.2°C (onset temperature of the first peak) and a corresponding mass loss was observed on the TG curve, showing that all the substance was evaporated at the end of the study. The crucible was visually checked after the determination: By opening the crucible, no test item left in the crucible and no sign of decomposition was observed.

Fourth determination: (atmospheric pressure: 1017.6 hPa)

Initial boiling point was observed at 250.1°C (onset temperature of the first peak) and a corresponding mass loss was observed on the TG curve, showing that all the substance was evaporated at the end of the study.

The crucible was visually checked after the determination: By opening the crucible, no test item left in the crucible and no sign of decomposition was observed.

In case of small pressure deviations the boiling temperature at standard pressure can be calculated following the equation of Sidney-Young.

Tn= T + (ƒ x ∆p)

With

Tn  = boiling point at 101.325 kPa in K

T    = measured boiling point in K

ƒ    = correction factor (tabulated value)

∆p  = (101.325 – p) kPa

P   = measured atmospheric pressure in kPa

The corrected values following Sidney-Young equation were determined to be 250.0°C (mean of 250.0°C at 1013.25 hPa for the third determination and 249.9°C at 1013.25 hPa for the fourth determination).

Conclusions:
Initial boiling point of test item was determined to be 250.0°C (mean of 250.0°C at 1013.25 hPa for the third determination and 249.9°C at 1013.25 hPa for the fourth determination) and a corresponding mass loss was observed on the TG curve, showing that all the substance was evaporated at the end of the study.
The crucible was visually checked after the determination: By opening the crucible, no test item left in the crucible and no sign of decomposition was observed.
Executive summary:

The study was performed in order to determine the boiling point of test item according to OECD 103, resp. EU A.2, using the DSC method.

Initial boiling point of test item was determined to be 250.0°C (mean of 250.0°C at 1013.25 hPa for the third determination and 249.9°C at 1013.25 hPa for the fourth determination) and a corresponding mass loss was observed on the TG curve, showing that all the substance was evaporated at the end of the study.

The crucible was visually checked after the determination: By opening the crucible, no test item left in the crucible and no sign of decomposition was observed.

Description of key information

Initial boiling point of test item was determined to be 250.0°C (mean of 250.0°C at 1013.25 hPa and 249.9°C at 1013.25 hPa) and a corresponding mass loss was observed on the TG curve, showing that all the substance was evaporated at the end of the study.

The crucible was visually checked after the determination: By opening the crucible, no test item left in the crucible and no sign of decomposition was observed.
