Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Results and discussion

Boiling point
Boiling pt.:
> 673 K
Atm. press.:
101.43 kPa

Any other information on results incl. tables

No value for the boiling temperature could be determined experimentally. However, using an adaptation of the Stein and Brown method, MPBPWIN version 1.41, © 2000 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the boiling temperature was calculated to be 816 K.


Small undulations were present from approximately 330°C (603 K). These undulations are possibly due to some decomposition and/or boiling of the test material. Upon opening the crucibles, a brown stain-like residue was evident, which is indicative of decomposition/ volatilisation. It was not possible to perform a visual assessment on the test material as the methods used are restricted to 360°C. The thermal events observed in the thermograrns occur after this temperature; therefore no further useful information would be obtained.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

The boiling temperature of the test material has been determined to be >673 ± 0.5 K at 101.43 kPa.
A calculated value of boiling temperature gave a result of 816 K.
Executive summary:

In a general physico-chemical properties study (0656/0338), the test material was determined to have a boiling temperature of greater than 673 ± 0.5 K based on the DSC method, Method A2 of Commission Directive 92/69/EEC. A calculated value of boiling temperature gave a result of 816 K.
