Description of key information

Boiling point (BHMT-H): BHMT-H will undergo thermal decomposition without boiling

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The requirement to test the boiling point of the substance was waived because the substance decomposes without boiling. This statement is supported by a recent, reliable DSC test which demonstrates that the anhydrous form of the acid melts with decomposition without boiling. Salts would be expected to undergo thermal decomposition. Boiling points of 100°C, 107°C and >100°C with decomposition temperature of 200°C after evaporation of water were reported for the substance in available secondary sources to which reliability could not be assigned.
