Additional information

Melting point for hexadecyl methacrylate: 20.5 – 21.1 °C (reliable handbook data, atmospheric pressure [1013 hPa] assumed, Shibasaki & Fukuda (1982), published experimental data)

The melting point of hexadecyl methacrylate is supported by the long chain methacrylic acid ester 17,4 (mixture of approximately 30% C16-methacrylate and approximately 65 % C18-methacrylate) with a determined melting point for methacrylic acid ester 17,4 of 16 °C at 1013 hPa (reliablity: 1, OECD 102, equivalent to GLP standards, non GLP, Evonik Oil Additives GmbH, 2011).
