Using the equations below, vapour pressures at ambient temperature were calculated.

P(20 °C) = 10B * (1/293.15) + A 

P(25 °C) = 10B * (1/298.15) + A

Discussion

The vapour pressure of the test item was measured using the static method as described in EU method A.4. Twelve pairs temperature/vapour pressure were used to calculate a regression from which vapour pressure at ambient temperature could be estimated.

From the measured values, the vapour pressure of the test itemlwas calculated as 724 Pa at 20.0 °C and 941 Pa at 25 °C. The values of the heating and cooling down phase showed very good correspondence.

Therefore, the result of the study is considered valid.

Conclusions:
The vapor pressure of the test substance has been determined to be 724 Pa at 20 °C and 941 Pa at 25 °C (interpolation).
Executive summary:

The vapour pressure of the test substance was measured under GLP according to OECD 104 / EU A4 guideline using a static method.

12 individual measurements were conducted in a temperature range of 15.1 – 56.1 °C and the pairs of Temperature / Vapour pressure were used to calculate a regression from which vapour pressure at ambient temperature could be interpolated.

Note that the result obtained on this kind of substance should be largely influence by small amounts of volatile constituents and these values may represent a limited part of the substance. Therefore the result should be considered with caution when used for subsequent assessment (worst case).

Additional information

A fully reliable experimental study, conducted according to a recognized OECD/EC method and under GLP, is available. It is considered as a key study.

Note that the result obtained on this kind of substance should be largely influence by small amounts of volatile constituents and these values may represent a limited part of the substance. Therefore the result should be considered with caution when used for subsequent assessment (worst case).
