Type of method:
other: differential scanning calorimetry
Melting / freezing pt.:
> 633 K
Remarks on result:
other: ± 0.5 deg K
The melting temperature of the test material has been determined to be greater than 633.0 ± 0.5 K.
Executive summary:

The determination was carried out by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) using the procedure specified in ASTM E537 -86, Method A1 of Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (which constitutes Annex V of Council Directive 67/548/EEC). Under the conditions of the test the substance was determined to have a melting point of greater than 633.0 ± 0.5 K.

Description of key information

The substance has no melting point (up to 360 °C).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
360 °C

Additional information

The melting temperature of the substance has been determined according to EU Method A.1.
