Any other information on results incl. tables

1. Endothermic effect at 50 - 200 °C:

- Peak 92.95 °C

- Enthalpy 326.68 J/g (release of water)

2. Exothermic effect at 280 - 420 °C:

- Peak 406.78 °C

- Enthalpy -342.07 J/g (decomposition)

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The endothermic effect shown at the DSC spectrum is not the melting point of the substance but the boiling point of the solvent (water). The exothermic effect starts at 280 °C when the substance decomposes. Therefore, the substance decomposes before melting point.
