Conclusions:
The vapoure pressure of the test item was determined to be 0.24 Pa at 20 °C, 0.53 Pa at 25 °C and 13.1 Pa at 50 °C, respectively.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted according to OECD TG 104 and Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 method A.4 to determine the vapour pressure of the test item using the dynamic method. With the dynamic method the vapour pressure was measured by determining the boiling point of the test item at various specified pressures between approx. 10 and 800 hPa. A steady temperature under constant pressure indicates that the boiling point has been reached. The vapour pressure was measured with the dynamic method in the temperature range of 104 °C to 219 °C. The vapour pressure was calculated to be 0.24 Pa at 20 °C, 0.53 Pa at 25 °C and 13.1 Pa at 50 °C, respectively.
