Melting / freezing point
Melting / freezing pt.:
60 °C
Decomposition:
no
Remarks on result:
other: Pressure not given.

Any other information on results incl. tables

The DSC measurement in a closed glass crucible with the test item showed an endothermic effect in the temperature range 35-100 °C (onset: 59.91 °C) which indicates melting of the sample.

In this study, decomposition was not observed as the measurement was conducted under nitrogen atmosphere.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The test item has a melting point of 60 °C.
Executive summary:

The melting point of the test substance was determined by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). The test item has a melting point of 60 °C.
