The analysis was carried out in the DSC 1 STAR SYSTEM by Mettler Toledo. A SWISSI M20 crucible was used for the determination. The measuring range was between 25 °C to 300 °C at a heating rate of 2.0 °C/min. The analysis was performed as a duplicate determination. The decomposition of the test item releases an average energy of 818.5 J/g. The onset temperature of melting is an average 72.5 ° C. The decomposition temperature is at an average of 80.8 °C.

Executive summary:

A study similar to OECD 102 and EU Method A.1 was performed to determine the melting point of the test item using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The analysis was carried out in the DSC 1 STAR SYSTEM by Mettler Toledo. A SWISSI M20 crucible was used for the determination. The measuring range was between 25 °C to 300 °C at a heating rate of 2.0 °C/min. The analysis was performed as a duplicate determination. The decomposition of the test item releases an average energy of 818.5 J/g. The onset temperature of melting is an average 72.5 ° C. The decomposition temperature is at an average of 80.8 °C.

Description of key information

Not applicable. The test item decomposes before boiling.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII, the boiling point study does not need to be conducted as the substance decompose before boiling.

A study similar to OECD 102 and EU Method A.2 was performed to determine the melting point of the test item using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The analysis was carried out in the DSC 1 STAR SYSTEM by Mettler Toledo. A SWISSI M20 crucible was used for the determination. The measuring range was between 25 °C to 300 °C at a heating rate of 2.0 °C/min. The analysis was performed as a duplicate determination. The decomposition of the test item releases an average energy of 818.5 J/g. The onset temperature of melting is an average 72.5 ° C. The decomposition temperature is at an average of 80.8 °C. As the test item decomposes right after melting, no boiling point could be determined. therefore, no test on boiling point is needed.
