The melting range of magnesium 2-ethylhexanoate was determined to be 99 -104 °C, according to the OECD guideline 102 "...; if the difference between the temperature at the beginning and at the final stage of melting is within the limits of the accuracy, the temperature at the final stage of melting is taken as the melting temperature; otherwise the two temperatures are reported;...".

Conclusions:
According to OECD guideline 102, the melting range of magnesium 2-ethylhexanoate was determined to be 99 - 104 °C.
