Description of key information

The melting point was determined to be < -75°C as per OECD 102.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-75 °C

Additional information

The key value was determined by using the differential scanning calorimetry according to the OECD 102 and in accordance with GLP. Due to inconclusive results from the intended method, a freezing point method was implemented instead. The melting point was determined to be <-75°C.

Titanium tetra(octanolate), branched and linear is hydrolytically unstable. When it comes in contact with water or moisture, a complete hydrolysis will take place with no significant reaction products other than the commercial solvent (Exxal 8; alcohols, C7-9-iso, C8-rich) and hydrated titanium dioxide. Because of rapid hydrolysis, read-across data on the melting point of Exxal 8, -90 deg. Celsius, released from the substance is used as a key value in exposure assessment when relevant (see sections 9&10 of CSR).
