method according to Siwoloboff
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Physical state: liquid
- Storage condition of test material: refrigerator (0-10°C) under nitrogen
Atm. press.:
98 kPa
Decomposition:
yes
Decomp. temp.:
ca. 294 °C

Individual measurements: (1) 567 K, (2) 572 K.

Accuracy not specified.

Executive summary:

The boiling point of the test substance was determined under GLP according to OECD103/EU A2 guideline, Siwoloboff (capillary) method.

Two main runs were performed, and the lower temperature was retained.

The test material has been determined to decompose from approximately 294 °C, prior to boiling at a pressure of 98.0 kPa.

Description of key information

Decomposition before boiling, from ca 294°C. (experimental)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A reliable experimental study, conducted according to a recognized OECD/EC method and under GLP, is available. Despite minor restrictions on accuracy, it is considered as a key study. As decomposition was observed, no key value can be retained.
