Conclusions:
The vapour pressure of the test item was calculated by extrapolation of the measured vapour pressure curve for the temperatures 20 and 25 °C:
Vapour pressure at 20 °C: 3.128E-3 Pa
Vapour pressure at 25 °C: 5.728E-3 Pa
Executive summary:

A study was conducted according to OECD TG 104, Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 method A.4 and OPPTS 830.7950 to determine the vapour pressure of the test item. The vapour pressure of the test item was determined at temperatures between 50 and 130 °C using the effusion method (Knudsen cell). For the evaluation the vapour pressure values in the range of 50 to 100 °C were used. The vapour pressure of the test item was calculated by extrapolation of the measured vapour pressure curve for the temperatures 20 and 25 °C. The vapour pressure was calculated to be 3.128E-03 Pa at 20 °C and 5.728E-03 Pa at 25 °C, respectively.
