Description of key information

The particle size distribution of 2-amino-6-chloro-4-nitrophenol at different passages after 45 minutes was 0.95, 8.09, 58.70, 24.80, 6.27 and 1.15% at analytical sieves with the mesh width 1.0, 0.710, 0.125, 0.075, 0.045 and <0.045 mm respectively.  The mean particle size was 0.3533 mm with fine dust, and 0.3568 mm without fine dust.

Additional information

The particle size distribution of 2-amino-6-chloro-4-nitrophenolwas determined following CIPAC (Collaborative International Pesticide Analytical Council), Analysis of Technical and Formulated Pesticides, MT 170 "Dry sieve analysis" method and the GLP.

The sieve analysis was carried out in the dry sieving technique using analytical sieves with the mesh width 1.0, 0.710, 0.125, 0.075, 0.045 and <0.045 mm.

The test was run for 45 minutes. However, additional data series were also obtained after 90 and 300 minutes.

The particle size distribution of 2-amino-6-chloro-4-nitrophenol  at different passages after 45 minutes was:

0.95 % at 1.0 mm

8.09% at 0.710 mm

58.70 % at 0.125 mm

24.80 % at 0.075 mm

6.27 % at 0.045 mm and,

1.15 % at <0.045 mm

The mean particle size with fine dust was 0.3533 mm. The mean particle size without fine dust was 0.3568 mm.
