Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 109 (Density of Liquids and Solids)
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The density of diethyl carbonate as a function of pressure and temperature was determined by a vibrating tube densimeter. The density measuring cell was designed to perform measurements over a broad range of temperature (from 263.15 to 423.15 K) and pressure (from vacuum to 70 MPa). The calibration parameters of the densimeter were determined using vacuum and water.
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
oscillating densitimeter

The density of diethyl carbonate was determined to be 0.9747 g/cm³ at 20°C and 1000 hPa.
Executive summary:

The density of diethyl carbonate as a function of pressure and temperature was investigated using a vibrating tube densimeter (OECD Guideline 109: Density of Liquids and Solids). The density of diethyl carbonate was determined to be 0.9747 g/cm³ at 20°C and 1000 hPa.
