Description of key information

Boiling point 275.3 ± 1ºC at 99 kPa, EU Method A.2, OECD 103, Tarran (2012).
Boiling point reported to be 265ºC at 760 mm Hg and between 125 and 127ºC at 4 mm Hg, Good Scents Company (2011).
Boiling point reported to be between 125 and 127ºC at 4 mm Hg, Chemical Book (2013).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In the key study (Tarran, 2012) the boiling temperature of the test material was determined in accordance with GLP and the standardised guidelines EU Method A.2 and OECD 103 using differential scanning calorimetry. Under the conditions of the study, the boiling temperature was determined to be 275.3 ± 1ºC (548.5 ± 1K) at 99 kPa.

Supporting information is available in the form of a test material entry on Chemical Book and information from the Good Scents Company material database which reported the boiling point of the test material to be 265ºC at 760 mm Hg and between 125 and 127ºC at 4 mm Hg which is in fairly good agreement with the boiling point determined in the key study.

The key study was assigned a reliability score of 1, whereas the supporting information was assigned a reliability score of 4 in accordance with principles for assessing data quality as set out in Klimisch (1997).
