Reference
Endpoint:
relative density
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
December 04, 2017
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 109 (Density of Liquids and Solids)
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The density of the sample was measured using a Micromeritics AccuPyc 1330 Pycnometer. The AccuPyc uses helium (CP grade, BOC) and applies the gas displacement technique to assess the density. The instrument reports the data from five consecutive results within a specified tolerance from each other. The average of these measurements is reported. The analysis was performed in duplicate.
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
pycnometer method
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Purity test date: 20/10/2017

Conclusions:
The relative density of 2-(2-methylpropoxy)ethanol was determined to be 0.8902 g/cm3.
Executive summary:

An experiment was carried out using a Micromeritics AccuPyc 1330 Pycnometer to measure the relative density of 2-(2-methylpropoxy)ethanol (n = 2) in accordance with OECD 109. It was concluded that 2-(2-methylpropoxy)ethanol has an average relative density of 0.8902.

Description of key information

2-(2-Methylpropoxy)ethanol was concluded to have a relative density of 0.8902 g/cm3.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
0.89

Additional information

The endpoint conclusion was obtained in accordabce with OECD 109 without deviation. The result can subsequently be regarded as a key value and it is suitable for chemical safety assessment, with a recommended Klimisch score of 1 (reliable without restriction).
