Description of key information

Appearance/physical state/colour

The test substance was determined to be a colorless to light yellow clear liquid at 1013 hPa and 20 °C.

 

Melting point/freezing point

The freezing point of the test substance was determined to be < - 20 °C. In accordance with column 2 Annex VII section 7.2 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH), no further test on melting point needs to be conducted as the melting point of the substance is below - 20°C.

 

Boiling point

The boiling point of the test substance was determined to be 233.5 °C at 1013 hPa.

 

Density

The relative density of the test substance was determined to be 0.9025 at 20 °C with respect to water at 4 °C.

 

Particle size distribution (Granulometry)

This physical chemical property was not applicable to the test substance as the substance was a liquid at room temperature.

 

Vapour pressure

The vapour pressure of the test substance was determined to be 0.73 hPa at 20 °C, 0.95 hPa at 25 °C and 3.20 hPa at 50 °C.

 

Partition coefficient

The partition coefficient log Pow of the test substance was determined to be log Pow = 3.3 at 25 °C.

 

Water solubility

The water solubility of the test substance was determined to be 0.267 g/L at 20 °C.

 

Surface tension

This physical chemical property was not applicable to the test substance as the substance did not consist of one or more hydrophilic and hydrophobic groups of such nature and size that it was capable of reducing the surface tension.

 

Flash point

The flash point of the test substance was determined to be 98.0 °C at 1013 hPa.

 

Auto flammability

The test substance was determined to have an auto-ignition temperature of 260 °C.

 

Flammability

The substance was not classified as flammable, flammable in contact with water, pyrophoric, and self-heating substance.

 

Explosiveness

This physical chemical property was not applicable to the test substance as the form and chemical structure of the substance showed no indication for this.

 

Oxidising properties

This physical chemical property was not applicable to the test substance as the form and chemical structure of the substance showed no indication for this.

 

Stability in organic solvents and identity of relevant degradation products

The stability of the test item in organic solvents is not considered as critical.

 

Self-reactive substances

The study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with explosive or self-reactive properties and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied.

 

Organic peroxide

The study does not need to be conducted because the substance does not fall under the definition of organic peroxides according to GHS and the relevant UN Manual of tests and criteria.

 

Corrosive to metals

In accordance with Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 Annex XI the UN test C.1 does not need to be conducted as the pH value of the substance is greater than 4 and less than 10 and there is no halogen in the molecule.

 

Gases under pressure

The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid.
