Key result
Surface tension:
35.8 mN/m
Temp.:
20 °C
Conc.:
1 g/L

The calibration factor for the torsion balance at 20°C was 1.0034.

The measured mean surface tension of a nominal 1 g/L solution of the test substance was 38.1 mN/m (mean of 38.0, 38.0, 38.0, 38.0 and 38.5 mN/m) at 20°C.

The corrected surface tension was; 38.2 mN/m.

The surface tension was <60 mN/m. Therefore, the Harkins-Jordan correction was applied and the corrected surface tension was 35.8 mN/m.

Conclusions:
The surface tension of the substance was determined to be 35.8 mN/m at a test concentration of 1 g/L and at 20°C.

Description of key information

Based on a GLP study (K1, Foster, 2016) according to the EU method A.5 and OECD guideline 115, the surface tension was determined to be 35.8 mN/m at a test concentration of 1 g/L and at 20°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Surface tension:
35.8
in mN/m at 20°C and concentration in mg/L:
1 000
