Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to guideline
other: ASTM E 537, Standard method for assessing the thermal stability of chemicals by methods of differential thermal analysis.
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
differential scanning calorimetry
Melting / freezing pt.:
191 °C
Atm. press.:
ca. 1 atm

The DSC diagram shows two endothermic peaks. The first peak at about 170°C has an endothermic energy of about 8 J/g. Begause of this small energy this peak can ruled out as the the melting point. The second peak has an endothermic energy of about 72 J/g. This is in the range of melting energies. Individual results:

 No.  Sample mass (mg)  Melting Point (°C)
 1  12.0  191.0
 2  11.1  191.4
 3  12.8  191.2
 Mean    191.2
Executive summary:

The melting point using DSC was measured according to ASTM E 537.
