Density:
1.181 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: 01.998 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 the test substance at 20.0 °C were:

First sample (average of 2 determinations): ρ = 1.181 g/mL

Second sample (average of 2 determinations): ρ = 1.181 g/mL

Average (rounded off): ρ = 1.181 g/mL

The estimated precision is: ± 0.001 g/mL

Conclusions:
The density of the test substance was determined according to the OECD guideline 109, EU method A.3 and EPA OPPTS 830.7300. The density of the test substance was found to be 1.181 ± 0.001 g/mL at 20.0 °C.
Executive summary:

The density of Benzyl Salicylate was determined according to the OECD guideline No. 109 (oscillating densitimeter method). The result can be expressed as follows:

ρ = 1.181 ± 0.001 g/mL at 20°C
