Description of key information

In accordance with section 7.14 of Column 2 of Annex VII, the study does not need to be conducted if the substance is marketed or used in a non solid or granular form. 
As 2,6-Xylenol is obtained from the production process in its liquid form and thereafter either marketed in its liquid form or dissolved in an organic solvent, a particle size distribution is not considered to be relevant. Under circumstances where the substance solidifies (temperatures below its melting point), 2,6-Xylenol will become a molten mass. As a molten mass is a physical state which contains no inhalable particles and will not produce airborne dust, it is concluded technically not feasible to determine the particle size distribution of solidified 2,6-Xylenol.
