 Equipment  Mettler Toledo DSC-822e   Mettler Toledo DSC-822e  Mettler Toledo TGA/SDTA851e
 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
