Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
This test was only performed to give an impression of the solubility of Glycoldimercaptoacetate (GDMA) in different organic solvents. It does not raise the claim to determine exact solubility in g/L.
GLP compliance:
no
Other quality assurance:
other: ISO 9001:2008
