PERFORMANCE OF THE PRETEST

Calibration of the thermometer

The thermometer was checked against a certified thermometer. A correction did not need to be applied.

Preliminary test

The preliminary test was performed and no congestion was observed down to a temperature of - 50 °C.

Main Test

As no congealing was observed in the preliminary test, no further tests were undertaken

Conclusions:
No freezing point was observed down to a temperature of -50 °C (223.15 K). Therefore: Freezing point of Benzyl Salicylate was determined to be less than -50 °C (223.15 K).
Executive summary:
The freezing point of Benzyl Salicylate was measured according to the OECD guideline No. 102 (method of freezing temperature). No freezing was observed down to a temperature of -50 °C (223.15 K). Therefore, Freezing point of Benzyl Salicylate was determined to be less than -50 °C (223.15 K).

Description of key information

No freezing point was observed down to a temperature of -50 °C (223.15 K). Therefore: Freezing point of Benzyl Salicylate was determined to be less than -50 °C (223.15 K).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
