Description of key information

Various Hanbooks and review present a melting point close or equal to 121,5°C. Although methodologies are not precised, these are reference handboks and the results are coherent: a weight of evidence approach is relevant.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
121 °C
