Additional information

A number of values are available from a variety of sources for the main components of this substance, all consistently reporting similar figures. Commercially produced material contains impurities which mean that the boiling point is a range. The value from key study used as this is from a reliable source and the boiling point of the lowest molecular weight pure substance likely to be encountered in this material.
