Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Sample weight remains stable till to 320°C in air

Additional information

Thermal stability on 133-66-4 was investigated by:

1)     Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC),

2)     Thermogravimetric analisys (TGA).

1)     DSC: sample (7-8 mg) were closed in Aluminium pan and heated from 40°C to 400°C at 10°C/minute heating rate. DSC profile shows an endotermic event from 100°C to 200°C with two maxima that is due to water desorption. From 320°C an exothermic deflection of the base line clearly indicate thermal decomposition of the optical brightener.

2)     TGA: sample were heated in inert atmosphere (Nitrogen) from 40 to 850°C at 20°C heating rate. TGA loss profile confirms the water release at lower temperatures. Sample weight remains stable till to 330°C. At higher temperature a progressive weight loss is due to the sample decomposition.
