Additional information

In the key study (Sárvári, 2012c) the vapour pressure of the test material was determined using the isoteniscope method in a study conducted under GLP and in line with the standardised guidelines OCED 104 and EU Method A.4. The study was assigned a reliability score of 1 in line with the principles of Klimisch (1997).

After filling approximately 1 mL of the test material into the sample cup, the stirring magnet was inserted into the cup and placed into the tester. Dissolved air was removed from the sample by evacuation at 20 °C. The vapour pressure as a function of temperature was registered in 20-100°C range in 5 °C steps.

The apparatus was calibrated by measuring the vapour pressure of the reference substance, ultra-pure water in the 20-80 °C range in 5 °C steps. Measurements deviated from the literature values less than 10% above 25 °C, and therefore the measured values were accepted at 4.06 kPa and above.

The lowest reliable measured vapour pressure was 4.06 kPa. A vapour pressure curve (log p versus 1/T) was plotted. A line was fitted was applied to the measured data (above 4.06 kPa) applying the least squares method. The vapour pressure was back calculated from the regression line for 20 and 25 °C. Based on the simplified Clausius-Clapeyron equation a regression line was fitted on the measured data and the vapour pressure was extrapolated for 20 and 25 °C.

Under the conditions of the test, the extrapolated vapour pressure of the test material was determined to be 0.76 kPa at 20 °C and 0.95 kPa at 25 °C.
