particle size distribution (granulometry)
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is marketed or used in a non solid or granular form

Description of key information

Based on the physical state, the granulometry test is not possible. Granulometry is not relevant for the substance

Additional information

Docosan-1-ol is a waxy solid (paraffin-like) at standard temperature and pressure; therefore it is not relevant to conduct a granulometry study for this endpoint.

Discussion of trends in the Category of C6-24 linear and essentially-linear aliphatic alcohols:

Many of these substances are liquids. Where substances are solid at ambient temperature they are of a waxy/amorphous form rather than crystalline (though it is possible to obtain crystalline forms in the laboratory, from certain organic solvents). Granulometry is not a relevant endpoint in terms of the products supplied.
