Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
> 173 - < 175 °C

In 5 runs with duplicate measurements a melting range for Captan was found from 173°C to 175 °C.

Captan was found to melt in range from 173 °C to 175°C.

Description of key information

Melting point of captan was determined by capillary tube method to be in a range from 173°C to 175°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
173 °C

Additional information

Melting point of captan was experimentally determined between 173°C to 175°C.
