GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
pour point
Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
< -21 °C

Minimum temperature of the pour point test apparatus and its cooling medium is -24 °C. Repeatability of the test at 95% confidence level as per ASTM interlaboratory test program is 3 °C.

Conclusions:
Pouring point <-21 °C
Executive summary:

Standard Test Method for Pour Point of Petroleum Products, ASTM D97 was conducted on pure Australian sandalwood oil (fusanus spicatus, ext.). The pouring point of the test material is <-21 °C
