Results and discussion

Melting / freezing point
Atm. press.:
ca. 1 013
Decomposition:
yes
Decomp. temp.:
270 °C
Remarks on result:
other: decomposition with a mean energy of -300 J/g

Any other information on results incl. tables

Closed cup: The measurements showed an endothermic effect in the temperature range 260 - 270°C directly followed by a spontaneous exothermal decomposition in the temperature ranges 270 - 290°C with a decomposition energy of -170 J/g followed by a second exothermal decomposition in the temperature ranges 290 - 450°C with a decomposition energy of -300 J/g.

Open cup: A measurement showed an oxidation reaction starting at approximately 240°C. This oxidation reaction covers the thermal decomposition.
