Endpoint:
appearance / physical state / colour
Type of information:
migrated information: read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
02/10/2009 -05/11/2009
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
The substance tested is a hydrated form of the substance to be registered and therefore in accordance with 'Data Submission Manual, Part 18 - How to report substance identity in IUCLID 5 for registration under REACH' the hydrated form is considered to be different to the anhydrous form. Read-across from trimagnesium phosphate-4-hydrate to the anhydrous trimagnesium bis(orthophosphate) is justified on the basis that the addition of water is unlikely to detrimentally affect the physicochemical or (eco)toxicological profile of the substance. The reliability has been amended in accordance with 'practical guide 6: How to report read-across and categories' which states that the maximum reliability for a read-across study is 2. The study is considered to be adequate and reliable for the purpose of registration under REACH (Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006).
Qualifier:
no guideline required
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Visual observation
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:
solid
Form:
powder
Colour:
white
Odour:
other: no data
Substance type:
inorganic
Conclusions:
Trimagnesium phosphate-4-hydrate has been determined to be a white powder. This study was performed in accordance with an accepted method (visual observation) and under the conditions of GLP.
