Endpoint:
relative density
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
12/2007 to 03/2008
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study without detailed documentation
Remarks:
The study was conducted according to an internationally recognised method. The substance is adequately defined (with certificate of analysis). However, some experimental data are missing. Therefore validation applies with restrictions.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: ISO 758
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 109 (Density of Liquids and Solids)
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
pycnometer method
Dynamic viscosity of test material:
Pycnometer method applies for liquids with viscosity up to 500 Pa.s. Based on IUCLID point 4.22 (<10 mPa.s at 20°C), the method is suitable.

Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
data from handbook or collection of data
Remarks:
Despite data comes from a handbook, please note that the source is cited among "reference books containing peer reviewed physico-chemical data" in the ECHA guidance document on information requirements (R7a). Therefore it will be considered as reliable, with the restriction that no purity is stated.

Executive summary:

The US EPA RED on the pesticide Furanone provides, as secondary source, some physico-chemical properties on the two compounds of Furanone. A (relative) density in the range 0.942 - 0.945 (ambient T assumed) is cited.

Description of key information

The substance is less dense than water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
0.942

Additional information

A reliable study, conducted by the registrant according to the OECD guideline, is available. Despite restrictions due to missing details, it is considered as a key study, and the result is retained as key data.

Literature data was not taken into account in the present dossier, nevertheless the range was consistent with the above value.
