Reference
Endpoint:
boiling point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Justification for type of information:
Work performed on water-based liquid as it proved impossible to dry the substance.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.2 (Boiling Temperature)
GLP compliance:
no
Other quality assurance:
other: GLP accredited laboratory
Type of method:
other: Capilliary method
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Batch HMK/370/38/1
Sample contains water; note that it was impossible to remove water to obtain water-free samples without decomposition.
Key result
Boiling pt.:
ca. 102.6 °C
Atm. press.:
1 018 mBar
Decomposition:
ambiguous
Remarks:
Not observed, but earlier attempts to remove water by heating led to decomposition
Conclusions:
Material containing water boils close to the boiling temperature of water.
Earlier work demonstrates that if heating to remove water, the sample does decompose.

Description of key information

Material containing water boils close to the boiling temperature of water.

Earlier work demonstrates that if heating to remove water, the sample does decompose.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
102 °C
