Test guideline

EU Method A.4 (Vapour Pressure)
Comment: Since the vapor pressure was expected to be very low, a mixture of substances was examined. If the vapor pressure of the mixture did not exceed a certain value, this would also be valid for every single substance.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

The vapor pressure of ZK 92136 was determined using a screening method based on the

detection of the evaporation rate from a Knudsen cell of a vapor pressure balance at 25 °C.

Since simplified experimental conditions are also acceptable within the scope of this project, ZK

92136 was mixed with four other compounds. From all five test substances low or very low

vapor pressures, based on the study director´s experience, were expected. For this reason the

experiments consisted in the measurement of the evaporation rate of the mixture from a

Knudsen cell a 25 °C. Since the evaporation rate of the mixture was below the value derived

from the lower limit of the vapor pressure range recommended for the use of a vapor pressure

balance (1E-03 Pa, EC Testing Guideline A.4) it can be assumed that the vapor pressure of the

mixture is lower than 1E-03 Pa.

Considering this fact, the vapor pressure of the single compounds in the mixture has also to be

lower than 1E-03 Pa. Therefore, the vapor pressure of ZK 92136 can be estimated to be at 25 °C:

p25 < 1E-03 Pa
