OECD Guideline 102 (Melting point / Melting Range)
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Type of method:
differential scanning calorimetry
Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
ca. 159.6 °C
The melting point of the test item has been determined to be 159.6 ± 0.5 °C (432.8 ± 0.5 K).

Executive summary:


The study was undertaken to determine the melting point of the test material. The method followed the guidelines in "methods for the determination of physico-chemical properties " , Official Journal of the European communities L383A Vol 35, 29th December 1992.

The melting point was deteremined by differential scanning calorimetry, designed to be compatible with Method A.2 Boiling Temperature of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008 and Method 103 of the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals, 27 July 1995.

Results & Conclusions

The melting point of the test material was determined to be 159.5 ± 0.5 °C (432.8 ± 0.5 K).
