Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with national standard methods with acceptable restrictions
according to guideline
other: ASTM D850 Distillation of Industrial Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Related Materials
equivalent or similar to guideline
OECD Guideline 103 (Boiling point/boiling range)
Principles of method if other than guideline:
According to ASTM D850, a carefully controlled distillation of aromatic hydrocarbons and related materials is carried out wherein temperature readings are taken at the initial drop of distillate and at intervals up to and including the dry point - defined as when the liquid just disappears from the flask. A calibrated ASTM distillation thermometer is used. Results are reported at 760 mm Hg. Results are in close agreement with simulated distillation based on published normal boiling points of the pure isomers and Antoine coefficients.
