melting point/freezing point
Type of information:
read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Justification for type of information:
The hypothesis for the analogue approach is that the both the registration substance, Hydrocarbons, C14-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics (target substance) and the test substance, Hydrocarbons, C13-C18, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <2% aromatics (source substance), are both hydrocarbons with some constituents in common. The substances therefore have qualitatively similar properties (RAAF Scenario 2 applies).
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
read-across source
Melting / freezing pt.:
> 0 °C
Atm. press.:
1 atm

Description of key information

The pour point of Hydrocarbons, C14-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics, read across from the substance Hydrocarbons, C13-C18, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <2% aromatics, measured using the ASTM D 97 method, is below 0°C.
