Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Based on the shape of the standard DSC curve and observations during the preliminary capillary test, the endothermic change in enthalpy observed at less than 155 °C was believed to be a change in crystalline structure. The test substance melted at 158-178 °C (432 - 450 °K). Estimated accuracy of the method was ± 2.2 °C.

Under the conditions of the test, the melting point of the test substance was determined to be 158 - 177 ºC (432 - 450 ºK).
Executive summary:

In a GLP compliant melting point study conducted in line with EU Method A1, the boiling point of butanoic acid, 4-[[4-[7-chloro-6-(1,1-dimethylethyl)-3H-pyrazolo[1,5-b][1,2,4]triazol-2-yl]phenyl]amino-4-oxo, tetradecyl ester was determined using the differential scanning calorimetry method. The melting point of the substance was determined to be 158 - 177 ºC (432 - 450 ºK).

Description of key information

Key study:- Brandt (2004) 'Physico-chemical properties with respect to melting, boiling and solid flammability' conducted in line with EU Method A.1. The melting point of the test substance was determined to be 158-177 ºC (432-450 ºK).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
158 °C

Additional information

The key study (Brandt, 2004) was performed in compliance with GLP and to the EU Method A.1 with a sufficient level of detail to assess the quality of the presented data. The study was performed to a good standard in line with an accepted, standardised guideline and was assigned a reliability score of 1 using the principle for assessing data quality as set out in Klimisch et al. (1997). The melting point of the test substance was determined to be 158-177 ºC (432-450 ºK).
