Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
< -100 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Remarks on result:
other: No melting point was observed in the temperature range of -100 °C to room temperature at 1013 hPa.

Results

During the cooling phase, no thermal effects were observed down to a temperature of -100 °C. Therefore, the test item has no freezing or melting point down to -100 °C under atmospheric pressure. At room temperature, the test item is a liquid.

 

Final Results

The test item has no melting point down to a temperature of -100 °C at atmospheric pressure (1005 hPa) as determined by differential scanning calorimetry according to Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.1. and OECD Test Guideline 102 (1995).

Conclusions:
A melting point value of <-100 °C (at 1005 hPa) was determined for the test substance according to E.U. Method A.1.

Description of key information

Melting point: <-100 °C at 1013 hPa (EU Method A.1., differential scanning calorimetry)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A melting point value of <-100 °C (at 1013 hPa) was determined for the test substance according to E.U. Method A.1.
