melting point/freezing point
Type of information:
read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study with acceptable restrictions
Acceptable, well-documented study record which meets basic scientific principles, no GLP lab.
Justification for type of information:
A discussion and report on the read across strategy is given as an attachment in Section 13.
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
read-across: supporting information
according to guideline
other: ASTM D 5950
GLP compliance:
Non GLP certified lab
Type of method:
pour point
Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
-30 °C
Atm. press.:
1 atm
The measured pour point was -30°C at 1 atm according to test method ASTM D 5950.
Executive summary:

The measured pour point was -30°C at 1 atm according to test method ASTM D 5950.

Description of key information

The pour point is <-20°C according to testing methodology ASTM D 5950.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The pour point of Hydrocarbons, C11-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics is read across from another related substance. Hydrocarbons, C12-C15, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <2% aromatics has a measured pour point of -37°C according to ASTM D5950. This result is considered to be reliable and is used as weight of evidence that the registration substance, Hydrocarbons, C11-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics has a pour point of <-20°C.
