The atmospheric pressure during measurement is not reported. It is assumed that the melting point was determined at an atmospheric pressure of 101.325 kPa.

Conclusions:
According to the reference, cobalt sulphate has a melting point of >700 °C.

Description of key information

Melting point of cobalt sulfate (handbook data): > 700 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
700 °C

Additional information

For the evaluation of this endpoint data from one handbook were used. According to the REACH regulation (“ECHA, guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment – chapter R.7a”), it is allowed to use specific handbook data as a reliable data source. Useful reference books and data compilations containing peer reviewed physico-chemical data include the Merck Index.
