Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

melting point/freezing point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study without detailed documentation
equivalent or similar to guideline
OECD Guideline 102 (Melting point / Melting Range)
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
thermal analysis
Differential scanning calorimetry
Melting / freezing pt.:
> -12.6 - < 26.6 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Remarks on result:
other: The curve showed a wide melting profile.


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


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 .
