Results

Run 6

A plot of Log10 (vapor pressure (Pa)) versus reciprocal temperature (1/T(K)) for Run 6 gives the following statistical data using an unweighted least squares treatment. Slope: -4.50 x 10^3

Standard error in slope: 66.5

Intercept: 13.9

Standard error in intercept: 0.219

The results obtained indicate the following vapor pressure relationship:

Log10 (Vp (Pa)) = -4.50 x 10^3 /temp(K) + 13.9 The above yields a vapor pressure (Pa) at 298.15 K with a common logarithm of -1.16.

Run 7

A plot of Log10 (vapor pressure (Pa)) versus reciprocal temperature (1/T(K)) for Run 7 gives the following statistical data using an unweighted least squares treatment. Slope: -4.49 x 10^3

Standard error in slope: 85.2

Intercept: 13.9

Standard error in intercept: 0.281

The results obtained indicate the following vapor pressure relationship: Log10 (Vp (Pa)) = -4.49 x 10^3 /temp(K) + 13.9 The above yields a vapor pressure (Pa) at 298.15 K with a common logarithm of -1.16.

Run 8

A plot of Log10 (vapor pressure (Pa)) versus reciprocal temperature (1/T(K)) for Run 8 gives the following statistical data using an unweighted least squares treatment. Slope: -4.39 x 10^3

Standard error in slope: 88.5

Intercept: 13.6

Standard error in intercept: 0.292

The results obtained indicate the following vapor pressure relationship: Log10 (Vp (Pa)) = -4.39 x 10^3 /temp(K) + 13.6 The above yields a vapor pressure (Pa) at 298.15 K with a common logarithm of -1.16.

Summary of Results

The values of vapor pressure at 25 °C extrapolated from each graph are summarized in the following table:

Run Log10 [Vp(25 ºC)]
6 -1.16
7 -1.16
8 -1.16
Mean -1.16
Vapor Pressure 6.95 x 10^-2 Pa

Discussion

The test item did not change in appearance under the conditions used in the determination.

The results may represent rounded values obtained by calculations based on the exact raw data

A total of 8 runs were completed for the main sequence. Equilibrium with regards to vapor pressure was assessed to have been reached over the final 3 runs. Thus the final 3 runs have been used to calculate the definitive vapor pressure value for the test item.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The vapor pressure of the test item has been determined to be 7.0 x 10^-2 Pa at 25 ºC.
Executive summary:

The vapor pressure of Beta-Menadione has been determined to be 7.0 x 10^-2 Pa at 25 °C, using the vapor pressure balance method, designed to be compatible with Method A.4 Vapour Pressure of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008 and Method 104 of the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals, 23 March 2006.
