Endpoint summary

Administrative data

Description of key information

Physico-chemical properties were determined from experimental testing, except Auto-Ignition Temperature that was derived from a structural analogue. Some endpoints were waived, based on chemical structure.

The substance is a liquid at ambient temperature, with low volatility.

In water, it is slightly soluble, less dense, with no surface-active properties anticipated (i.e. excess will floate).

It has potential for bioaccumulation.

It is NOT classified as dangerous with regard to physical hazards, based on CLP criteria.
