Description of key information

Appearance/physical state/colour:

The substance is a white to off-white, odourless flaked solidified melt at room temperature.

(Source: internal company data)

Melting point:

The test item has a melting point of 81.46°C under the conditions of this study.

(Source: GLP-report)

Boiling point:

The test item has a boiling point of > 295°C under the conditions of this study. The test item started to decompose at ca. 295°C.

Water solubility:

The water solubility of the test item is 0.944 mg/l at 20°C.

(Source: GLP-report)

Surface tension of an aqueous solution:

The surface tension was measured to be 72.1 mN/m at 20°C. The test item has therefore no surface active properties.

(Source: GLP-report)

Flash point:

The flash point was found to be > 200°C.

(Source: Internal company data)

Auto flammability:

The relative self-ignition temperature of the test item is > 105°C at an atmospheric pressure of ca. 98.8 kPa.

(Source: GLP-report)



The substance is not flammable. Based on the chemical structure, the test item does neither react with water nor evolve any flammable gases in contact with (humid) air.

(Source: GLP-report and expert assessment)


Based on chemical structure and information on handling and use the substance was considered non-explosive. Experimental determination was waived.
