Description of key information

The viscosity of Bis(2-ethylhexyl) carbonate is 5.94 mPa s at 20°C.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Viscosity:
5.94 mPa · s (dynamic)
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

The viscosity of Bis(2-ethylhexyl) carbonate was calculated using "method 2" published by Grain (1990) and which is based on the equation by van Velzen et al (1972) being log ηL= B3(1/T – 1/T0). The calculation yielded a viscosity of 5.94 mPa s at 20°C.

According to the "Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, May 2008", the applied estimation method is a recommended method for the evaluation of non experimental data for viscosity.

This calculation is supported by data from the material safety data sheet: The viscosity of Bis(2-ethylhexyl) carbonate is reported to be 6 mPa s at 20°C (Method: Brookfield-Visc.RVT Sp.1).
