Overall mean calibration corrected surface tension = 73.0 mN/m

Harkins-Jordan* corrected value = 72.0 mN/m

*: HARKINS, W.D. and, H.F., J. Amer. Chem. Soc.52, 1751 (1930)

Conclusions:
The test substance is not considered to be surface active (surface tension >60 mN/m).

Description of key information

72 mN/m (90% saturated aqueous solution at 20°C) (OECD 115, EC A.5)
