Description of key information

The melting temperature of cis-3,3,5-trimethylcyclohexanol was determined by differential scanning calorimetry according to OECD Test Guideline 102 (1995) and EU test method A.1 (2008). The result was 26.0°C at 1011.7 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
26 °C

Additional information

A collection of literature data is available for the melting points of both cis and trans isomers of 3,3,5-trimethylcyclohexanol. Values of the melting point of pure cis isomer of 37°C and trans isomer of 57°C are reported at atmospheric pressure.
