Reference
Endpoint:
boiling point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
comparable to guideline study with acceptable restrictions
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 103 (Boiling Point)
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
single measurement, no pressure and no accuracy were stated
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to
Guideline:
EU Method A.2 (Boiling Temperature)
Version / remarks:
2008
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
single measurement, no pressure and no accuracy were stated
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
other: Simultaneous Thermal Analyser
Decomposition:
yes
Decomp. temp.:
ca. 175 °C

The sample showed an exotherm associated with a weight loss indicating a degradation initiating at ~175 °C. The sample did not become self-heating throughout the temperature range of the test.

Conclusions:
No boiling point can be determined for magnesium 2-ethylhexanoate as the material decomposes (~175 °C) before a boiling point is reached.

Description of key information
