PRINCIPLE
The static method is used to evaluate the vapour pressure of chemical compounds. In this process, at thermodynamic equilibrium, the vapour pressure established in a closed system is determined at a specified temperature. This method is suitable for pure solids and/or liquids as well as mixtures thereof. It provides accurate results for pressures ranging from 10 up to 105 Pa, but can also be used in the range 1 to 10 Pa. In this case, providing care is taken.

EQUIPMENT
Measurement cell: A custom-made static cell mounted
Temperature probe: Pt100 type
Pressure sensor: MKS 631, 0-1000 torr absolute
Data acquisition unit: Agilent 34970-A

PERFORMANCE OF THE TEST
About 15 mL of the test item was introduced into the apparatus and degassed at 5°C. The test item was then transferred into the static cell, which was previously put under vacuum. The measurement cell is surrounded by a jacket through which a thermally regulated fluid can circulate.
The temperature of the bath was adjusted to different values from 6.6 °C up to 40.2 °C. For each bath temperature, once the temperature and pressure inside the cell were stable, three readings were made, spaced by not less than 5 minutes.

The uncertainty of measurement for pressure was about 0.7 mbar and for temperature, it was about 0.05 °C The measured vapour pressures were used to regress the coefficients of Antoine's law reported in Table 2 using the following equation. They enable to calculate the vapour pressure of the test item at any given temperature provided this temperature falls within the range specified in the same table.

The maximum error involved by the modelling of vapour pressure with our Antoine’s law is about 0.8 mbar which is in magnitude of the uncertainty of measurement of pressure.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Using the Antoine’s law, the vapour pressure was calculated at 20 and 25°C.
The vapour pressure of the test item at 20°C is 121.92 mbar +/- 0.97 mbar.
The vapour pressure of the test item at 25°C is 156.54 mbar +/- 0.97 mbar.
Executive summary:

The vapour pressure of Isopropyl trifluoroacetate was determined using a static cell, following OECD guideline 104.

The vapour pressure of the test item at 20°C is 121.92 mbar +/- 0.97 mbar.

The vapour pressure of the test item at 25°C is 156.54 mbar +/- 0.97 mbar.
