Description of key information

Determination of the
Melting Point /Melting Range
of FAT 40853/A TE
(GLP compliant study based on the Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008, A.1, 2008, OECD No. 102, 1995 and OPPTS 830.7200, March 1998)
Author: Andrea Fieseler

Study Completion Date: October 24, 2011

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information


The determination of the melting point was performed by visualjudgementusing the capillary method.

In two preliminary tests up to 400 °C no changes in colour and physical stage were observed. At the end of the experiment the test item was solid.




In conclusion, forFAT 40853/A TEno stage of melting could be observed. At the end of the experiment the test item was solid. No melting point according to the guideline could be observed.
