Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Any other information on results incl. tables

The vapour pressure was measured in the temperature range of 20 °C to 134 °C. Above 60 °C a vapour pressure could be measured. The measured vapour pressures at the corresponding temperatures are listed below:

Temperature [°C] / Vapour pressure [hPa]

60.0             5.0 x 10-6

66.5             1.8 x 10-5

72.7             4.9 x 10-5

77.8             9.8 x 10-5

82.2             1.8 x 10-4

*86.4            2.6 x 10-4

*90.4            3.1 x 10-4

*94.3            3.2 x 10-4

*98.5            3.2 x 10-4

*102.9          3.2 x 10-4

*108.7          4.6 x 10-4

*113.4          4.1 x 10-4

*119.2          2.7 x 10-4

*134.0          4.4 x 10-4

*Due to the unusual behaviour of the vapour pressure curve above 82 °C, the regression to determine the coefficient of the Antoine equation A, B, C was only done in the temperature range 60 - 82 °C. This is used to calculate the vapour pressure at lower temperatures.

The values for 20, 25 and 50 °C are calculated from the measurement curve, using the Antoine constants A, B and C.

T/°C  p/hPa       log(p/hPa) =A+B/(C+T[°C])

20     2.24E-09     A=19.55854

25     6.67E-09     B=-8268.98

50     9.33E-07     C=273.15

 Final Results

Vapour Pressure

The calculated vapour pressure values are extrapolated:

T/°C  p/hPa            p/Pa

20     2.2x10-9       2.2x10-7

25     6.7x10-9       6.7x10-7

50     9.3x10-7        9.3x10-5

Applicant's summary and conclusion

The vapour pressure of the test substance is 6.7E-09 hPa at 25 °C.
Executive summary:

The vapour pressure of the test substance was determined in a guideline study (EU A.4; OECD TG 104) with a vapour pressure balance (effusion method). The vapour pressure is 6.7E-09 hPa at 25 °C.
