Any other information on results incl. tables

Vapour pressure was measured at temperatures between 40 - 50 C. A total of seven tests were performed. The average vapour pressure was .032 Pa (standard deviation = 0.0025). Linear regression analysis was used to calculate the vapour pressure at 25 C. The test material did not show any change in appearance during the test.

Representative data are given in Table 1. The plot is attached as Figure 1.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The vapour pressure of the test material is 0.032 Pa at 25 C. The test material did not show transitions in physical state during testing.
Executive summary:

The vapour pressure of the test material was determined using the vapour pressure balance method following EU Method A.4 guidelines.  Measurements were made between temperatures of 40 - 50 C.   A plot of log P vs 1/K was prepared from the experimental measurements and was used to calculate the vapour pressure of the test material at 25 C. The vapour pressure of the test material at 25 degrees C is  0.032 Pa.

The test material did not show transitions in physical state during testing.
