Description of key information

The melting point of isomaltulose greens was measured using the OECD Guideline 102.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
40 °C

Additional information

The determination of the melting temperature of the test substance was performed by the capillary method with hot block heating. At the start of the test at 30 °C the test substance was a yellowish solid respectively a highly viscous non-stirrable mass. At about 40 °C the test substance was a stirrable highly viscous liquid. The viscosity of the test substance decreased throughout the test beginning at 40 °C. At about 65 °C the test substance was a yellowish viscous liquid.

The colour of the test substance did not change during the test. Identical observations were made in the four samples (original and additional dried test substance). Due to these observations no exact melting temperature was stated. The melting temperature of isomaltulose solution is < 40 °C
