Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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
Study period:
25 May to 21 June 2012
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study without detailed documentation
The study was conducted according to an internationally recognised method, and under GLP, but experimental details are missing. The substance is adequately identified, but some data on composition is missing. Therefore validation applies with restrictions.
according to guideline
EU Method A.1 (Melting / Freezing Temperature)
no isomers ratio; no details on the crucible type were provided
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Not applicable
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
11 March 2011
Type of method:
differential scanning calorimetry
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Physical state/Appearance : Light yellow translucent liquid
- Storage : The test substance was stored at room temperature protected from direct sun light.
Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
-10.9 °C

Three successive tests were retained.

Mean onset for melting occurred at -10.9 °C ± 0.4 °C. The validity criteria were fulfilled: the standard deviation within the three replicate assessments did not exceed 0.5 °C. Therefore the average value is retained as final result.

Executive summary:

The melting point of the test substance was determined under GLP according to EU Method A.1 by using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC).

Three main runs were performed, and the mean final temperature was retained.

The melting temperature of test substance has been determined to be- 10.9 °C ± 0.4 °C.

Description of key information

Experimental melting point (i.e. transition from solid to liquid) = -10.9°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-10.9 °C

Additional information

A reliable experimental study, conducted according to a recognized EC method and under GLP, is available. Despite restrictions due to incomplete test item identification and missing experimental details, it is considered as key study, and the result is retained as key data.
