Description of key information

The melting point of MBB was 353.9 - 354.3 K (80.7 – 81.1°C), measured by capillary tube method.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
354.1 K

Additional information

The melting point of 2-Methoxymethyl-p-phenylenediamine (MBB) was determined following OECD guideline 102 (Melting Point / Melting Range).

Melting point of the test material was determined by Capillary Tube Method. The capillary tube containing test material was heated in a liquid bath (silicon oil) apparatus. Test material inserted in the capillary tube was heated to a temperature (below approx. melting point) in silicon oil bath apparatus. From then on, and throughout the actual melting, the temperature rise was a maximum of 1K/min. During the determination of the melting temperature, the temperature was recorded at the beginning and end of melting. 

The melting point of 2-Methoxymethyl-p-phenylenediamine (MBB) was 353.9 to 354.3 K (80.7 – 81.1°C). During the melting process the test material melted to a colorless clear liquid. After solidifying a dark white to beige crystalline residue with partly brown discoloration remained.
