Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Test guidelineopen allclose all
OECD Guideline 103 (Boiling point/boiling range)
other: OECD Guideline 104
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The determination of the Normal Boiling Temperature of a purified substance can be performed by dynamic vapour
pressure measurement according to the Annex to Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (A.2) and the OECD Test Guideline 103.
Therefore the Normal Boiling Temperature was deduced from vapour pressure data obtained by a dynamic method according
to the Annex to Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (A.4) and the OECD Test Guideline 104.
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)

Any other information on results incl. tables

DSC analysis: In order to survey the therrnic behaviour of the test item one determination (test1) was run up to 400°C. An exothermic decomposition was not observed. An endothermic peak with an onset at 344°C was observed. In combination with the recorded loss of mass this indicates the vaporization of the test item.

The regression of the results leads with a mean deviation of 0.09 % to the following equation: In(p/hPa) =17.3023 - 5344.17 /(170.49+ t/°C) The Normal Boiling Temperature was obtained by extrapolation. 344.3°C/1013.25hPa
