Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Reaction and/or decomposition of the test substance was observed starting at 150°C (423K). Melting and/or boiling of the test substance was not observed below the temperature at which reaction and/or decomposition started. Based on this, the test substance has no melting and/or boiling
Executive summary:

The melting temperature of the test substance were determined using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) acc. to OECD guideline 102. The melting temperature is defined as the temperature at which the phase transition from solid to liquid state takes place at normal atmospheric pressure. This temperature ideally corresponds to the solidification or freezing temperature.

In the Preliminary test 2.55 mg test substance was heated with a rate of 20°C/minute from 25°C to 550°C. At this point 48% weight loss of the test substance was observed. After the experiment, the sample was cooled to 50°C and the consistency of the test substance was determined.

In the main study an endothermic peak between 75°C and 150°C was observed. The effect was most likely obtained due to evaporation of some water vapour from the test substance. An exothermic effect was seen between 150°C and 225°C. This effect is most likely due to reaction and/or decomposition of the test substance. No melting and/or boiling point could be observed. After the experiment, a black charred residue remained in the sample container.
