During the preliminary test using a linear heating rate of 10 °C/min the phase transition of test item was observed at 39 °C.

In the main test using a linear heating rate of 0.5 °C/min the melting point of the test item was determined to be 38.5 °C (311.6 K).

Conclusions:
The melting point of the test item was determined to be 38.5 °C.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted according to OECD TG 102, Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008 method A.1 and EPA OPPTS 830.7200 to determine the melting point of the test item using the capillary method. In a preliminary test using a linear heating rate of 10 °C/min the phase transition of the test item was observed at 39 °C. For the main test, a small amount of test item was charged in capillary glass tubes and packed tightly to obtain a filling level of approximately 5 mm. Three capillaries were prepared.Heating was started from 25 °C.Using linear heating rate of 0.5 °C/min, the melting point of the test item was determined to be 38.5 °C at 1013.25 hPa.
