The vapour pressure was measured in the temperature range of 30 to 45 °C. For the evaluation the vapour pressure values in the range of 30 to 45 °C were used. The measured vapour pressure values together with the temperatures and the regression data of the vapour pressure curve can be seen in Tables 1 and 2, respectively.

Conclusions:
The estimated vapour pressure of the test item at 25 °C is 184.2 Pa.
Executive summary:

The vapour pressure of the test item has been determined in an experimental study according to OECD TG 104 (2006), European Commission Regulations (EC) No. 440/2008 and No. 761/2009, method A.4. and OPPTS 830.7950. A Knudsen cell (effusion method) was used to measure the vapour pressure of the test item in the temperature range of 30.1 °C to 45.6 °C. Overall six data points were measured. The vapour pressure of the test item was calculated by extrapolation of the measured vapour pressure curve for the temperatures 20 and 25 °C The estimated values are: 20 °C: 139.02 Pa, 25 °C: 184.20 Pa.
