Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The test material has been determined to decompose from 418 +/- 0.5K at 101.75kPa. As the test material decomposed no value for boiling temperature could be determined.
Executive summary:

Boiling Temperature.  Decomposed from 418 ± 0.5 K at 101.75 kPa, as the test material decomposed, no value for boiling temperature could be determined by differential scanning calorimetry, using ASTM E537-86, Method A2 Boiling Temperature of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.
