Test material

Constituent 1
Reference substance name:
Methyl octadecanoate, chloro
Molecular formula:
C17H30Cl4COOCH3, C17H29Cl5COOCH3 , and C17H28Cl6COOCH3 (primary isomers based on 35-40% Cl by weight)
IUPAC Name:
Methyl octadecanoate, chloro
Constituent 2
Reference substance name:
Methyl hexadecanoate, chloro
Molecular formula:
C15H28Cl4COOCH3 and C15H27Cl5COOCH3 (primary isomers based on 35-40% Cl by weight)
IUPAC Name:
Methyl hexadecanoate, chloro
Constituent 3
Reference substance name:
Methyl dodecanoate, chloro
Molecular formula:
C19H31Cl5COOCH3 and C19H30Cl6COOCH3 (primary isomers based on 35-40% Cl by weight)
IUPAC Name:
Methyl dodecanoate, chloro
additive 1
Chemical structure
Reference substance name:
Soybean oil, epoxidized
EC Number:
232-391-0
EC Name:
Soybean oil, epoxidized
Cas Number:
8013-07-8
Molecular formula:
C57H98O12
IUPAC Name:
Epoxidized Soybean Oil
Test material form:
liquid
Details on test material:
A complex combination of chlorinated fatty acid mtethyl esters that are predominantly C18 (~ 70 – 85%) and C16 (~ 15 - 30%) in length. The chlorination levels by weight are between 35-40%. The chlorination process is largely random, though chlorination will occur first by direct addition at unsaturated sites in the unsaturated methyl esters present in the starting material.

Results and discussion

Flash point
Flash point:
> 263.64 °C
Atm. press.:
1 atm
Remarks on result:
flash point cannot be measured because of the presence of halogen hydrocarbons
