Endpoint:
melting point/freezing point
Type of information:
read-across based on grouping of substances (category approach)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
From September 14, 2017 to February 14, 2018
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Remarks:
KL2 due to RA
Justification for type of information:
Refer to section 13 of IUCLID for details on the Category justification. The study with the read across substance is considered sufficient to fulfil the information requirements as further explained in the provided endpoint summary.

Key result
Decomposition:
yes
Decomp. temp.:
ca. 106 °C
Remarks on result:
not determinable

Results:

Decomposition: 106°C

Comments

Suspected decomposition was observed from 106°C (the sample started rising up the tube with the evolution of colourless gas). At 130°C the sample ejected out of the tube. The test was terminated.

Conclusions:
Based on the results of the read across study, the test substance is also expected to decompose before melting.

Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the melting point of the read across substance, 'Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolysed wool' (active: 62.8%), using capillary method with photocell detection according to OECD Guideline 102 and EU Method A.1, in compliance with GLP. During the study, suspected decomposition was observed from 106°C (the sample started rising up the tube with the evolution of colourless gas). At 130°C the sample ejected out of the tube. As a result further testing was stopped. Under the study conditions, melting point of the read across substance could not be determined due to decomposition (Chilworth, 2018). Based on the results of the read across study, the test substance, 'Steardimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolysed wool', is also expected to be decomposed before melting.

Comment

Suspected decomposition endotherms observed around 120°C. Brown residues were observed in the sample pans after the tests. A visual analysis was performed to confirm suspicion of decomposition.

Conclusions:
Based on the results of the read across study, the test substance is also expected to be decomposed before melting.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the melting point of the read across substance, 'Cocodimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolysed wool' (active: 62.8%), using Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), according to OECD Guideline 102 and EU Method A.1, in compliance with GLP. Under the study conditions, the melting point for the read across substance could not be determined due to decomposition (Chilworth, 2018). Based on the results of the read across study, the test substance, 'Steardimonium hydroxypropyl hydrolysed wool', is also expected to be decomposed before melting.

Description of key information

Melting point of the read across substance was determined using the differential scanning calorimetery (DSC) and capillary method, according to OECD Guideline 102 and EU Method A.1 (Chilworth, 2018).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Value used for CSA: No melting point could be determined due to decomposition at 106-120°C (based on the results of the read across study)
