Description of key information

Additional information

The physical and chemical properties were determined by testing on the BPA 2EO, BPA 5EO and BPA 1-4.5EO. Read across was considered justified for this endpoint owing to the similarities in the values obtained for the BPA EO and the BPA PO for the water solubility and partition coefficient endpoints.

Basic physical and chemical properties summary

Melting Point/Boiling Point: No melting point was found between -100°C and 50°C. A glass transition was observed at -26°C. No boiling point was found. Decomposition was observed at 300°C.

Vapour Pressure: Very low (0.00036 Pa)

Water Solubility: Moderately water soluble

Partition Coefficient: Log Kow 2.77 -3.94. Unlikely to be bioaccumulative

Physical Hazards: Non flammable, non explosive, and no oxidising properties
