Additional information

A measured boiling point of 177.7°C was determined for the substance in accordance with OECD 103 and in compliance with GLP. The result is considered to be reliable and selected as key study. This value is supported by reported boiling point of 178°C from two handbooks or collection of reliable data which have been subject to peer review and in which the original sources are traceable. Similarly, boiling point values of 178°C, 177°C at 750 mmHg (999.92 hPa), 85 - 86°C at 26 mmHg (34.66 hPa), 105°C at 72 mmHg (95.99 hPa) and 177.9°C were reported in secondary sources to which no reliability could be assigned. The supporting studies at standard atmospheric pressure are in good agreement with the key study.
