1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 103 (Boiling Point)
Version / remarks:
1995
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Type of method:
photocell detection
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- The infrared (IR) spectrum of the test material measured at this laboratory was confirmed to be identical to that provided by the sponsor.
- In addition, the IR spectrum of the test material after the completion of the experiment was the same as that before the start of the experiment, and it indicated that the test material was stable under the storage conditions.
Key result
Decomposition:
ambiguous
Decomp. temp.:
270 °C
Remarks on result:
other: atm pressure not reported

- No adverse effects on the reliability of this test were noted.

- No boiling point of the test material was observed because the test material changes at about 270 °C.

Conclusions:
Under the conditions of this study, no boiling point of the test material was observed at temperatures up to 400°C. The test material was observed to change colour at 270°C.
Executive summary:

The boiling point of the test material was investigated in accordance with the standardised guideline OECD 103, under GLP conditions using photocell detection.

The test material inside the boiling capillary in the sample tube was held in the test equipment and the equipment was heated up to 400°C at a rate of 10°C per minute.

At 270°C the test material appearance changed from being a colourless transparent viscous liquid to a pale yellow liquid, then at 370°C it became a brown liquid.

Under the conditions of this study, no boiling point of the test material was determined because the test material decomposed at about 270°C.

Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The boiling point of the test material was investigated in accordance with the standardised guideline OECD 103, under GLP conditions using photocell detection. The study was awarded a reliability score of 1 in accordance with the criteria set forth by Klimisch et al. (1997).

The test material inside the boiling capillary in the sample tube was held in the test equipment and the equipment was heated up to 400°C at a rate of 10°C per minute.

At 270°C the test material appearance changed from being a colourless transparent viscous liquid to a pale yellow liquid, then at 370°C it became a brown liquid.

Under the conditions of this study, no boiling point of the test material was determined because the test material decomposed at about 270°C.
