Study period:
March 23, 2015
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to guideline
OECD Guideline 102 (Melting point / Melting Range)
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Differential scanning calorimetry analysis carried out according to SOP - SRT 028 protocol.
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
thermal analysis
Differential Scanning Calorimetry
Melting / freezing pt.:
> 202 - < 241 °C

Melting was observed between 202 and 241 °C. The onset of this process was at 222.5 °C, with enthalpy of -103.9 J/g.

Melting range is 202 - 241 °C.
Executive summary:


The test was performed according to internationally accepted testing procedures (OECD 102), using Differential Scanning Calorimetry method for analysis.


Melting was noted in the range of 202 - 241 °C. The onset of this process was at 222.5 °C, with an enthalpy of -103.9 J/g.

Description of key information

Melting point between 202 and 241 °C (onset at 222.5 °C).
