Endpoint:
relative density
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
Study initiation: February 15, 2011. Study completion: March 15, 2011
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Study performed according to GLP and guideline
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 109 (Density of Liquids and Solids)
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Remarks:
Date of insepction: 26 and 27 October 2010. Date of signature: 8 February 2011
Type of method:
oscillating densitimeter
Specific details on test material used for the study:
-Commercial name: Amyl Salicylate
-Chemical nature: Mixture of Pentyl 2-hydroxybenzoate and 3-Methylbutyl 2-hydroxybenzoate
-Givaudan Code No: 8810001
- Physical state: Liquid
- Analytical purity: 98.8% (sum of two isomers)
- Lot/batch No.: VE00100713
- Expiration date: September 10, 2011
Type:
relative density
Density:
1.054 other: g/ml
Temp.:
20 °C

The calibration of the instrument was verified at 20.0°C with double-distilled water and cyclohexane just before the determinations. The results were:

 

Water: reference value: 0.998 g/ml                      instrument reading: 0.998 g/ml

Chlorobenzene: reference value: 1.106 g/ml        instrument reading: 1.106 g/ml

 

The results are within the precision of the instrument (± 0.001 g/ml)

 

The results obtained with Amyl Salicylate at 20.0°C were:

 

First sample (average of two determinations): ρ = 1.054 g/ml

 

Second sample (average of two determinations): ρ = 1.054 g/ml

 

Average (rounded off): ρ = 1.054 g/ml

 

The estimated precision is: ± 0.001 g/ml

Conclusions:
The relative density of Amyl Salicylate is 1.054 g/ml at 20°C
Executive summary:

The density of Amyl Salicylate was determined according to the OECD Guideline No. 109 (oscillating densitimeter method). The relative density was determined to be 1.054.
