Two DSC measurements in aluminium crucibles with a hole showed an endothermal effect after the melting in the temperature range of 340 - 370 °C. No further endothermic or exothermic effects were observed up to the final temperature (500 °C). The mass loss after the DSC measurements amounted to 100 %.

The test item had a mean boiling point at atmospheric pressure (1013.3 hPa) of 342.9 °C.

Conclusions:
The test item has a mean boiling point at atmospheric pressure (1013.3 hPa) of 342.9 °C.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted according to OECD TG 103 and Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 method A.2 to determine the boiling point of the test item using differential scanning calorimetry. The test item was weighed out into an aluminium crucible under an inert atmosphere (nitrogen). Two tests with about 14 – 19 mg of the test item were performed. As reference crucible, an empty aluminium crucible was used. Two DSC measurements in aluminium crucibles with a hole showed an endothermal effect after the melting in the temperature range of 340 - 370 °C. No further endothermic or exothermic effects were observed up to the final temperature (500 °C). The mass loss after the DSC measurements amounted to 100 %. The correction of the boiling temperature to standard pressure was performed according to H.N. Hass and R.F. Newton. The test item boiling point was determined to be 342.9 °C at 1013.3 hPa.

Additional information

A study was conducted according to OECD TG 103 and Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 method A.2 to determine the boiling point of the test item using differential scanning calorimetry (reference 4.3-1).
