Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

 Crucible  Aluminium crucible with a capacity of 40 microL.  gold plated high pressure crucible with a capacity of 30 microL (hermetically sealed until 150 bar)  Alumina crucible with a capacity of 70 microL.
 Gas  dry nitrogen at 50mL/min  dry nitrogen at 50 mL/min  Dry nitrogen 50 mL/min.
 Method  Heating from 30ºC to 600ºC at a rate of 10ºC/min   Heating from 30ºC to 400ºC at a rate of 10ºC/min

 Heating from 30°C to 600°C at a rate of l0ºC/min. Previously, a blank curve has

been performed and it has been subtracted.

The substance decomposes at 187ºC without melting
Executive summary:

A first DSC has been done and the sample has shown an endothermic phenomenon starting at 187ºC with an associated heat of 330.6 J/g

In view of these results, the same sample has been analysed by DSC-HP (in inert atmosphere, nitrogen) showing an exothermic phenomenon from 197°C with a peak at 208°C and an associated heat of 362.9 J/g which could be attributed to the thermal decomposition of the sample.

The sample sample has been by TGA showing a first weight loss of 7.9% from 30°C to 224°C, a second weight loss of 8.9% from 224°C to 278°C and a third weight loss of 32.5% from 280°C to 598°C.

Description of key information

The determination has been done using DSC and DSC-HP (inert atmosphere with nitrogen) techniques.

The substance decomposes at 187ºC without melting.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
