Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to guideline
other: ISO 1183-1
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Acetone was used as solvent as C12 AAPB was visually completely soluble in water. Due to the volatility of acetone an ultrasonic bath instead of vacuum was used to remove air bubbles.
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
pycnometer method
Key result
1.2 g/cm³
20 °C
The relative density D (4/20) of C12 AAPB was determined to be 1.20 using a Hubbard pycnometer.
Executive summary:

The relative density of C12 AAPB was determined in a study conducted according to ISO 1183 -1. In deviation from guideline toluene was used as solvent as C12 AAPB was visually completely soluble in water. A relative density D (4/20) of 1.20 was determined using a Hubbard pycnometer.

Description of key information

relative density D (4/20) of C8 -18 AAPB: 1.15 at 20°C
relative density (D4/20) of C12 AAPB: 1.2 at 20°C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:

Additional information

The relative densities D (4/20) of C8 -18 AAPB and C12 AAPB were determined to be 1.15 and 1.2, respectively. All AAPBs are similar in structure, contain all the same zwitterionic structure. They differ, however, by their carbon chain length distribution and the degree of unsaturation (<=20%) in the fatty acid moiety. The content of minor constituents in all products are comparable and differ to an irrelevant amount. Based on the available data, it can be assumed that chain length distribution and degree of unsaturation of the fatty acid chain have no or at the most a minor impact on this endpoint.
