< -20 °C
Atm. press.:
ca. 1 atm
Decomposition:
no
Sublimation:
no

The test item was still not frozen after twelve hours of storage in a freezer at - 20°C.


According to Annex VII of REACH, the study does not need to be conducted below a lower limit of - 20°C. Therefore no main study was performed and the determination was terminated.


No melting/freezing point could be detected for ALPHA-PINENE EPOXIDE MULTICONSTITUENT in the experimental condition used. 


The melting/freezing point of substance ALPHA-PINENE EPOXIDE MULTICONSTITUENT should be stated < -20°C.

Conclusions:
According to guideline OECD 102 and method EU A.1, no melting point of substance ALPHA-PINENE EPOXIDE MULTICONSTITUENT was observed from - 20°C.
Executive summary:

The purpose of the study was to determine the Melting/Freezing point of substance ALPHA-PINENE EPOXIDE MULTICONSTITUENT.


The determination of the Melting/Freezing point was performed in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 440/2008, method A.1 ''Melting/Freezing Temperature'' (May 2008) and OECD Guideline No 102 ''Melting Point/Melting Range'' (July 1995).


The test item was still not frozen after twelve hours of storage in a freezer at - 20°C. According to Annex VII of REACH, the study does not need to be conducted below a lower limit of -20°C. Therefore the determination was terminated.


The Melting/Freezing point of substance ALPHA-PINENE EPOXIDE MULTICONSTITUENT should be stated as < - 20°C.

Description of key information

Melting point of substance ALPHA-PINENE EPOXIDE MULTICONSTITUENT is < -20°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-20 °C

Additional information

Key study conducted according to the OECD 102 Guideline and the EU A.1 method, not under GLP, with some lack of details but with certificate of analysis included. Therefore, a reliability of 2 is assigned and the result of this key study is proposed as the end point value.
