Description of key information

The stability of NExBTL renewable diesel was investigated in a polar organic solvent (methanol) and a non-polar organic solvent (hexane) over a 30 day period at 25 ± 2°C. The concentration of test material in the sample solutions was determined by gas chromatography (GC). The study was performed n a GLP laboratory. The test material was determined to be stable both in a polar organic solvent (methanol) and a non-polar organic solvent (hexane) and is thus soluble to organic solvents. 

Additional information

For hexane samples, loss in sample volume was observed followed by redilution. This was not considered to impact on the validity of the stability data generated.
