Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
No peaks were observed in the DSC charts and the test item did not change in appearance after testing (white powder). As the measurement was performed up to 400 °C, it is therefore concluded the melting point of the test item is >400 °C.
Executive summary:

The melting point of the test item was measured in a GLP study performed using method OCED 102. No peaks were observed in the DSC charts and the test item did not change in appearance after testing (white powder). As the measurement was performed up to 400 °C, it is therefore concluded the melting point of the test item is >400 °C.
