Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
ca. 305 °C
Atm. press.:
ca. 1 013 hPa

Under consideration of the results from the DSC measurements and the capillary method it was concluded that the test item melted under decomposition starting at 305°C.

Description of key information

The melting point /melting range are determined by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) according to EU Method A.1 and OECD Guideline 102. The test item Taurin for Synthesis melted under decomposition starting at 305°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
305 °C
