Description of key information

Decomposition at T > 289.22 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
289.22 °C

Additional information

The melting temperature of the test substance was investigated. The Differential Scanning Calorimetry method was used.

The procedure used was similar to OECD TG 102.

During the 1st run (Initial temperature: 25 °C; Final temperature: 400 °C) the thermal decomposition of the test substance started at temperature 289.22 °C was observed .

Always during the 1st run an endotermic phenomena with a peak temperature at 91.83 °C was observed. Based on the result of 2nd run (Initial temperature: 25 °C; Final temperature: 120 °C) the endotermic peak was attributed to evaporation. No peak corresponding to melting or boiling of the test substance was observed to the temperature at which the thermal decomposition started.

Melting temperature and boiling temperature of the test substance could not be determined because of thermal decomposition of the test substance.
