Conclusions:
Using a linear heating rate of 10 °C/min the boiling point of the test item was determined to be in the range of 136 - 149 °C (409 – 422 K) at atmospheric pressure.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted according to OECD TG 103, Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 method A.2 and EPA OPPTS 830.7220 to determine the boiling point of the test item using differential scanning calorimetry. The test item was weighed out into an aluminium crucible under an inert atmosphere (nitrogen). Two tests were performed. As reference crucible, an empty aluminium crucible was used. The substance is a highly viscous, semi-solid mass at ambient conditions. Using a linear heating rate of 10 °C/min the boiling point of the test item was determined to be in the range of 136 - 149 °C (409 – 422 K) at atmospheric pressure. After the test the test item was hardened and blackened in the crucible.

Description of key information

Using a linear heating rate of 10°C/min and differential scanning calorimetry, the boiling point of the test item was determined to be in the range of 136 - 149 °C (409 – 422 K) at atmospheric pressure.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
