Conclusions:
Under the study conditions, the relative density of the test substance was determined to be 0.905 +/- 0.1 at 20°C.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the relative density of 'oils, vegetable, deodorizer distillates' according to OECD Guideline 109, EU Method A.3 and EPA OPPTS 830.7300. The density of the test substance was determined from the difference in weight between the full and empty pycnometer and its known volume. The determination of the relative density was performed by three-fold measurement of three independent test substance samples. Under the study conditions, the relative density of test substance was determined to be 0.905 +/- 0.1 at 20°C (Fieseler, 2010i).
