Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

melting point/freezing point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
study well documented, meets generally accepted scientific principles, acceptable for assessment
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Column II of REACH Annex VII provides the adaptation that "The study does not need to be conducted below a lower limit of -20°C". Therefore, a limit test is performed to check that the melting point of the substance is lower than -20°C.
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
method to determine freezing temperature
Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
< -20 °C
Remarks on result:
not determinable
Limit test at -20°C

The substance was observed to be a clear liquid at 20°C, and after 48h at -20°C.

Melting point < -20°C
Executive summary:

The melting point of the test item was determined using a limit test at -20°C; as a sample stored at -20°C for 48h remained liquid, the melting point is < -20°C.

Description of key information

The study does not need to be conducted below a lower limit of - 20 °C according to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex VII, column 2

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-20 °C

Additional information

A limit test was performed and showed that the substance remains a liquid after 48h at -20°C.
