Remarks on result:
other: The curve showed a wide melting profile.

Results

The curve show a wide melting profile starting at -12.6°C and ends at 26.6°C where the sample is totally melted.

Explanation

The nature of the product consisting of a wide range of complex molecules is the reason for the wide melting profile.

Description of key information

melting range: -12.6 to 26.6 °C at ca. 1013 hPa (similar to OECD 102)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The melting range of the substance Glycerides, C16-18 and C18-unsatd. mono- and di-, citrates (CAS 91052-16-3) was determined by DSC, equivalent or similar to OECD 102 .
