Reference
Endpoint:
boiling point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
12/11/2015 to 12/11/2015
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Experimental result using standard methods of analysis
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 103 (Boiling point/boiling range)
Principles of method if other than guideline:
A sample is heated gradually in a tube which is immersed in a liquid bath. The sample tube is held in close contact with a thermometer and it contains a boiling capillary which is fused about 1 cm above its lower end. Upon approach of the boiling temperature bubbles emerge rapidly from the lower open end of the capillary. The boiling temperature is that temperature at which, on momentary cooling, the string of bubbles stops and liquid suddenly rises in the capillary.
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
method according to Siwoloboff
Boiling pt.:
131.6 °C
Atm. press.:
978.2 hPa
Decomposition:
no
Remarks on result:
other: Decomposition temp. not available
Conclusions:
The mean boiling point of the hexylamine (CAS No. 111-26-2) is 131.6°C at 978.2 hPa.
Executive summary:

The boiling point determination of n-hexylamine (CAS No. 111-26-2) was done as per the test guideline OECD 103. The method followed was according toSiwoloboff. The mean boiling point was found to be 131.6°C at 978.2 hPa.

Description of key information

In a test conducted by SSS (Europe)AB,the boiling point determination of n-hexylamine (CAS No. 111-26-2) was done as per the test guideline OECD 103. The method followed was according toSiwoloboff. The mean boiling point was found to be 131.6°C at 978.2 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
131.6 °C

Additional information

In a test conducted by SSS (Europe)AB,the boiling point determination of n-hexylamine (CAS No. 111-26-2) was done as per the test guideline OECD 103. The method followed was according toSiwoloboff. The mean boiling point was determined to be 131.6°C at 978.2 hPa.

Other supporting studies from reliable sources such as handbooks and authoritative database,also suggests that the boiling point of chemical Hexylamine was between the range of 126 degree C to 132.8 degree C.

As the data from lab has K1 reliability and the test was performed using OECD guidelines which has the value of boiling point as 131.6 degree celcius thus considered as key study for the chemical safety assessment.
