Description of key information

Melting point = 16 to 18 °C, OECD 102, EU Method A.1, Fox 2012

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In the key study (Fox, 2012), the melting point of the test material was determined in accordance with standardised guidelines OECD 102 and EU Method A.1 using a modified liquid bath method. Under the conditions of the study, the melting point of the test material was determined to be within the approximate range 16 to 18 °C (289 to 291 K). The study was conducted to GLP and was assigned a reliability score of 1 in accordance with the criteria of Klimisch (1997) and considered suitable as an accurate reflection of the test material.

Supporting information (Summer, 2003) is available in the form of a handbook abstract (Summer, 2003) with no reported methodology, which reports the melting point of the test material to be <- 25 °C. Due to it not being possible to assess the accuracy of the information, the data was assigned a reliability score of 4 in accordance with the criteria of Klimisch (1997).
