Results and discussion

Melting / freezing point
Melting / freezing pt.:
-49 - -1 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013.25 hPa
Remarks on result:
other: Because Blown rapeseed oil consists of many compounds, a melting range was measured instead of a melting temperature

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The melting temperature of Blown rapeseed oil was determined using DSC. Because Blown rapeseed oil consists of many compounds, a melting range was measured instead of a melting temperature: - 49 to -1 °C (224 to 272 K).
