Description of key information

Assumed to decompose completely without boiling

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Testing for this endpoint has been waived in accordance with column 2 restrictions.

Dry salts

For dry salts this endpoint has been waived as these materials melt above 300 °C and/or decompose before boiling.

Aqueous solutions

The boiling point of watery iron salt solutions can be approximated based on the molarity by:

delta T(boiling) = bs·Ke,

where delta T(boiling) is the boiling point elevation [K], Ke is the ebullioscopic constant for water (= 0.521 K·kg/mol) and bs is the combined molarity of the salts [mol/kg].

The likely boiling point ranges from ca. 104 to 120 °C at 101325 Pa.
