Please note that although the substance is described in the report with the IUPAC name: 6-Butyl-2,4-dimethyl-3,6-dihydro-2H-pyran related to the CAS number 24237-00-1, EC#246-098-0, recent analytical data had been determined the substance to be a multi-constituent described as Reaction mass of 6-butyl-3,6-dihydro-2,4-dimethyl-2H-pyran and 2-butyl-3,6-dihydro-4,6-dimethyl-2H-pyran and 2-butyltetrahydro-6-methyl-4-methylene-2H-pyran.

As the chemical manufacturing process has not changed since the report was written, the recent analytical information is relevant to the batch SC00008777 which was tested.

Any other information on results incl. tables

To further investigate the melting temperature of the test substance, two samples of the test substance were stored for 16 hours at -21.9 ± 0.3°C and -82.0 ± 1.9°C respectively. It was observed after storage that the test substance was a liquid (-20°C freezer) and a very viscous liquid (-80°C freezer). According to this it was concluded that the melting temperature of the test substance is < - 80°C (< 193 K).

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The melting temperature of Gyrane was determined at < -80°C (< 193K) by applying a storage experiment in the freezer.
Executive summary:

The melting temperature of Gyrane was determined at < -80°C (< 193K) by applying a storage experiment in the freezer.
