Description of key information

The initial boiling point of the test item has been determined to be ca 302 ± 2 °C (575 ± 2 K) between 98.7 and 100.5 kPa (not corrected to normal atmP)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
302 °C

Additional information

A fully reliable experimental study, conducted according to a recognized OECD/EC method and under GLP, is available. It is considered as a key study.

The initial boiling point was measured by differential scanning calorimetry method. Four determinations were performed using a thermal program from 20 to 450 °C with a heating rate of 20 °C/min. Note that an amber colored stain remained as the observed residue on completion of each determination.

Despite minor restrictions due to heating rate, it is considered as a key study. The mean boiling point was retained as key data for purpose of CSA.
