Specific details on test material used for the study:
Identification: RM10000077
Chemical name: Zinc oxide phosphite (CAS 64539-51-1)
Appearance/Physical state: white powder
Lot No: 1013Q17761
Purity: 62% (zinc content)
Expiry date: 25 June 2018
Storage conditions: room temperature, in the dark
Key result
Decomposition:
yes
Decomp. temp.:
>= 333 °C
Remarks on result:
not determinable
Remarks:
test item decomposed before melting
Key result
Decomposition:
yes
Decomp. temp.:
>= 301 °C
Remarks on result:
other: decomposition from 301°C when test item is dehydrated
Conclusions:
The metling point of the test item was not determined as it was determined to decompose from approximately 333 °C (606 K).
Decomposition may occur at a lower temperature of approximately 301 °C (574 K) when the test item is dehydrated.
Executive summary:

The test item decomposed from approximately 333 °C (606 K), by differential scanning calorimetry, using procedures designed to be compatible with Method A.1 Melting/Freezing Temperature of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008 and Method 102 of the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals, 27 July 1995. Decomposition may occur at a lower temperature of approximately 301 °C (574 K) when the test item is dehydrated. Therefore the melting point of the test item was not determined.

Description of key information

The metling point of the test item was not determined as it experienced decomposition from approximately 333 °C (606 K).
