no
Remarks on result:
not determinable
Conclusions:
Under the study conditions, the melting point was >300°C.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the melting point of the test substance (capillary viscometer method), in compliance with GLP. Under the study conditions, the melting point was >300°C (Mauss, 1989).

Description of key information

The melting point was determined according to EU Method A.1 (FCC Method III Cl. I) (capillary viscometer) (Mauss, 1989). The test item showed no melting point up to 300°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
