Executive summary:

The melting range of the test item was determined according to EU Method A.1. by applying the capillary method. The melting range of NMMO was determined to be 179-183°C at ambient conditions.

Description of key information

The melting range of NMMO under ambient conditions was determined to be 179-183°C in a GLP study according to test method EC A.1, capillary method (Younis, 2012).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
179 °C

Additional information

For the chemical safety assessment the lower end value of the melting range (179°C) was taken as the key value.
