appearance / physical state / colour
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
comparable to guideline study with acceptable restrictions
Qualifier:
no guideline followed
GLP compliance:
no
Specific details on test material used for the study:
The melting point has been determined to 33-35 °C. Thus at room temperature, the substance is a paste-like solid.
Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:
solid
Key result
Form:
other: paste-like
Substance type:
organic

The measured melting point is approximately 33 -35 °C, so the substance is a paste-like solid at room temperature..

Conclusions:
The substance is fully melted at 35 °C and 33 °C for the first and second melting curve, respectively and a paste-like solid at room temperature.
Executive summary:

The melting point of the substance "Reaction product of saturated palm kernel fatty acids and oxybispropanediol" was evaluated using Mettler-Toledo DSC 1. The substance is fully melted at 35 °C and 33 °C for the first and second melting curve, respectively. Thus, the measured melting point is approximately 33 -35 °C, and a paste-like solid at room temperature.

Description of key information

The measured melting point is approximately 33 -35 °C, so the substance "Reaction product of saturated palm kernel fatty acids and oxybispropanediol" is a paste-like solid at room temperature.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:
