Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to REACH annex VII, a study on the surface tension does not need to be conducted as the surface activity is not a desired property of carbon tetrachloride. However an available publication reports a surface tension of 26.92 mN/m at 20°C for pure carbon tetrachloride. This value is in good agreement with the value found in an handbook and in another publication (26.7 mN/m at 20°C).
