Description of key information

No boiling temperature could be determined for 1-ETHYL-3-METHYL IMIDAZOLIUM ETHYLSULFATE between 25 and 325 °C (298 - 598 K). Reaction or decomposition probably started at 145 °C (418 K) in an air atmosphere.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The determination of the boiling temperature of 1-ETHYL-3-METHYL IMIDAZOLIUM ETHYLSULFATE was performed in accordance with the following guidelines:

European Economic Community (EEC), EEC-Directive 92/69 EEC, Part A, Methods for the determination of physico-chemical properties, A.2 "Boiling temperature", EEC Publication No. L383, December 1992.

Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), OECD guidelines for testing of Chemicals, Guideline no. 103: "Boiling point", July 27, 1995.

Both the test substance and an inert reference were heated in a differential scanning calorimeter (DSC). The difference between the heat flow to the sample and the heat flow to the reference was recorded. Three experiments were performed. The results of all experiments were considered for the conclusion. No boiling temperature could be determined for 1-ETHYL-3-METHYL IMIDAZOLIUM ETHYLSULFATE between 25 °C and 325 °C (298 - 598 K). Reaction or decomposition probably started at 145 °C (418 K) in an air atmosphere.
