Discussion:

The density of the test item was calculated as 1.2221 ± 0.0003 g/cm3at 20.0 ± 0.4°C, which is the mean of two values.Precision of the value is given as maximal error of a single determination.

Standard deviation was 0.0003 g/cm3showing very good correlation of the two determinations.

Conclusions:
The test substance is denser than water.
Using the pycnometer method, the density was 1.2221 ± 0.0003 g/cm3 at 20.0 ± 0.4°C
Executive summary:

The density of the test substance was measured according to OECD 109 / EU A3 guideline, using pycnometer method. Two determinations were performed and the mean value was retained.

Description of key information

The test substance is denser than water.

Using the pycnometer method, the density was 1.2221± 0.0003 g/cm at 20.0 ± 0.4°C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
1.222

Additional information

A fully reliable experimental study, conducted according to OECD 109 /EU A3 guideline, using pycnometer method and under GLP, is available. It is considered as a key study, and the result is retained as key data.
