Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

154 °C

Additional information

The substance mainly consists of phenol and bisphenol-A. It does not have a well-defined melting/freezing point. The test is therefore technically not feasible. The melting points of phenol and bisphenol-A are provided instead.
