Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Names of test material (as cited in study report): Lemonile; 3,7-dimethyl-2,6-nonadienenitrile
- Substance type: Colourless liquid
- Physical state: Liquid
- Analytical purity: 99.4 % (sum of components)
- Lot No: VE00101509
- Expiration date of the lot/batch: 2012-09-09
Melting / freezing pt.:
< -50 °C

No congealing was observed down to the minimum temperature of -50 °C.

Conclusions:
The freezing point of the test substance was found to be <-50 °C.

Description of key information

Freezing point <-50 °C (OECD 102)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-50 °C

Additional information

The test substance was tested to -50 °C for freezing point, but did not freeze in this temperature range. For the purposes of the Chemical Safety Assessment, the value of -50 °C has been adopted.
