Any other information on results incl. tables

Thermograms and thermographic data for Determinations 1 and 2 (see attached background material) were obtained producing an overall result >673 ± 0.5 K.

As the test material did not boil, no value for the boiling temperature could be determined experimentally. However, using an adaptation of the Stein and Brown method, MPBPWIN version 1.42, ©2000 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the boiling temperature was calculated to be >824 K.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The boiling temperature of the test material has been determined to be >673 ± 0.5 K at 101.86 kPa.

A calculated value of boiling temperature gave a result of >824 K.
Executive summary:

Boiling Temperature:

The determination was carried out by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) using the procedure specified in ASTM E537-86, Method A2 of Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (which constitutes Annex V of Council Directive 67/548/EEC).

The boiling temperature of the test material has been determined to be >673 ± 0.5 K at 101.86 kPa.

A calculated value of boiling temperature gave a result of >824 K. The calculation was performed using an adaptation of the Stein and Brown Method MPBPWIN version 1.42, ©2000 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
