Additional information

The results have been taken from Dornhagen (2010), which is a GLP-compliant study following EC 440/2008 A.9 guidelines. The study is considered reliable and suitable for use as a key study for this endpoint.

This is supported by the WHO IPCS International Chemical Safety Card (ICSC 0019, 2004). No information on the primary source of these data or the methods used is available. However, this information is taken from an internationally peer-reviewed chemical safety card and can be considered reliable and suitable for use for this endpoint. Another published handbook (Lide 2009) also gives a value of <-29°C.
