Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.4 (Vapour Pressure)
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
No statistical analyses were performed because the balance readings were too low and variable for a line of best fit to have any meaning. Instead it was considered more appropriate to impose a regression slope on a chosen data point to provide an estimate
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Type of method:
effusion method: vapour pressure balance

Run 5 was chosen because the sample had been under vacuum for the longest period prior to this run and so degassing would have been the most complete. The reading at 250°C (523.15 K) was chosen because this is the data point which gives the highest estimated vapour pressure at any given temperature when a slope of -1500 K is imposed upon it.

No statistical analysis is given due to the nature of the plot.

The value of -1500 K is an in-house value and is the shallowest slope observed whilst determining the vapour pressure on a wide range of samples using the vapour pressurebalance method. Extrapolationto 25°C gave avapour pressureof1.263x10-4Pawhichhas been taken as a maximum for this material.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The vapour pressure of the test material has been determined to be less than 1.3 x 10-4 Pa at 25°C. The test material did not change in appearance under the conditions used in the determination.
Executive summary:

In a determination of hazardous physico-chemical properties study (Harlan project number: 0959/0225) the test material is shown to have a vapour pressure of less than 1.3 x 10 -4 Pa at 25°C.

The vapour pressure was determined using a vapour pressure balance with measurements being made at several temperatures and linear regression analysis used to calculate the vapour pressure at 25°C. Testing was conducted using Method A4 Vapour Pressure of Council Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

 

Run 5 was chosen because the sample had been under vacuum for the longest period prior to this run and so degassing would have been the most complete. The reading at 250°C (523.15 K) was chosen because this is the data point which gives the highest estimated vapour pressure at any given temperature when a slope of -1500 K is imposed upon it.

 

The value of -1500 K is an in-house value and is the shallowest slope observed whilst determining the vapour pressure on a wide range of samples using the vapour pressure balance method. Extrapolation to 25°C gave a vapour pressure of 1.263 x 10-4 Pa which has been taken as a maximum for this material.
