Description of key information

Testing for this endpoint was deemed unjustified as the substance in question is known to decompose before boiling.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Supporting information, reiterating the justification of the adaptation of the data requirements was available in the form of the information presented in WITCO (2000), a MSDS. The information was presented as a short abstract only and as such was assigned a reliability score of 4 in accordance with the criteria for assigning data quality in line with the principles described by Klimisch (1997). The test substance was reported to decompose at around 230 °C. This is further supported by the information submitted to fulfil the melting point endpoint. The test substance was shown to melt with decomposition in a GLP compliant study performed in accordance with standardised guidelines.
