2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
comparable to guideline study with acceptable restrictions
Reason / purpose:
reference to same study
Principles of method if other than guideline:
4.39 mg sample was weighed into an aluminum pan and hermetically sealed. The sample was run on a Mettler-Toledo DSC 1 using the thermal program -30 °C – 80 °C with 5 °C/min, 80 °C – -30 °C with 5 °C/min and -30 °C – 80 °C with 5 °C/min.
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
thermal analysis
Specific details on test material used for the study:
The test sample used for the study has the same ID as the registered substance.
Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
> 33 - < 35 °C
Atm. press.:
1 Pa
Conclusions:
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.
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 sample melts over a fairly broad range. The sample is fully melted at 35 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
35 °C
