Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
-49.4 °C
Atm. press.:
101.3 kPa

During measurement, an exothermic process was shown beginning at ~-95°C (~178K) with an onset temperature of ~-90°C (183K). This was interpreted as a form of crystalization process which resulted to the formation of a solid phase. The solid phase melts with an endothermic reaction at -49.4°C (223.8K) onset temperature.

The melting temperature can only be detected if the cooling process is carried out to a temperature below the crystalization temperature (-95°C). The table of results are shown below:

Mean value

-49.4°C (223.8K)

Approximate accuracy of the instrument = ±0.5K (up to 600K)

A melting temperature of -49.4°C at 1013 hPa has been determined for the test substance using an appropriate test method. The result is considered reliable.

Description of key information

Melting point/freezing point: -49.4°C at 1013 hPa (OECD 102)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-49.4 °C

Additional information

A measured melting temperature of -49.4°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the registered substance using a differential scanning calorimetry method in accordance with OECD Test Guideline 102 and in compliance with a known quality system (ISO 9001:2008). The result is considered to be reliable.
