Description of key information

DNAN was found to melt over the range 88 to 96°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Melting point determination was conducted as a package of physicochemical testing on DNAN (Envigo CRS Limited, NC15WS, 2018). The study was performed according to EC Method A.1 and OECD Method 102 and in compliance with GLP. The melting temperature was determined using the metal block method.

DNAN was found to melt over the range 88 to 96°C.
