Any other information on results incl. tables

Two tests with different amounts of the test item were performed to determine the relative density at a temperature of 20 °C ± 0.01 °C.

Results are shown in the table below.

 Test No.  Temperature (°C)  Amount of test item (g)  Average sample volume (cm³)  Density (g/cm³)*
 1  20  8.35411  6.10818  1.36769
 2  20  8.71247  6.43636

 1.35363

* The pressurizing-expansion cycles are performed until 5 subsequent volume measurements have a relative standard deviation (RSD) of <= 0.2 %.

The mean density of the test item at 20 °C is 1.3607 g/cm³. The relative density D420 is calculated by dividing the density of the test item by the density of water at 4 °C (0.9999750 g/cm³).

The relative density is 1.361.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The relative density of the test item 5-(Hydroxymethyl)furfural at 20 °C ± 0.01 °C (compared to water at 4 °C) is 1.361.
Executive summary:

According to OECD Test Guidelines 109 (2012), Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.3. and EPA OCSPP Test Guideline 830.7300 (2002), the relative density of the test item 5-(Hydroxymethyl)furfural at 20 °C ± 0.01 °C (compared to water at 4 °C) is 1.361.
