Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
>= 58.2 - <= 82 °C
Atm. press.:
ca. 1 013 hPa
Decomposition:
no
Conclusions:
The substance shows a wide melting range between 58 and 82 °C without signs of decomposition.

Description of key information

The key value is determined in an OECD 102 guideline study. The starting temperature of the melting process is selected for the further assessment.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
58.2 °C

Additional information

A melting range between 58.2 and 82 °C (331.4 to 355.2 K) was determined. These values are the means from two independent determinations.
