Decomp. temp.:

During the DSC runs the test item shows two endothermic effects in the temperature ranges of 150 °C – 180 °C and 210 °C – 370 °C.

The shape of the second endothermic effect suggests that the test item starts to decompose at approx. 210 °C; in view of the weight loss of the sample the decomposition is accompanied with gas formation and/or boiling of the decomposition products.

In order to investigate if the first endothermic effect observed in the temperature range from 150 °C  –  180 °C  can  be  associated  with  a  melting  of  the  test  item  further  measurements were carried with the capillary method.

Capillary Method

For verification of the results the test item  was additionally tested three times according to the capillary method. In the three tests, the test item melted at a temperature of 166.0 °C, 165.7 °C and 166.0 °C, respectively (mean value: 165.9 °C). At a temperature of 190 °C, the test item started to climb in the capillary. At a temperature of 210 °C, the test item started to turn dark. At a temperature of 260 °C the test item was black. The measurements carried out with the capillary method showed that the first endothermic effect observed in the DSC measurements in the temperature range of 150 °C – 180 °C can be assigned to a melting of the test item. As the onset temperatures of the first endothermic effect  observed  in  the  DSC  measurements  do  not  deviate  by  more  than  0.5 K  from  their mean value of 160.06 °C, the melting temperature is reported as 160.1 °C. Apart from that, the measurements carried out with the capillary method showed that the test item does not have a boiling point up to its decomposition starting at approx. 210 °C.

Conclusions:
The test item TA-2 has no boiling point up to its decomposition starting at approx. 210 °C as determined by differential scanning calorimetry and capillary method according to Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.2. and OECD Test Guideline 103 (1995).
