Key result
Decomposition:
yes
Decomp. temp.:
> 295 °C
Remarks on result:
other: Two determinations with 294 °C and 297 °C, atmospheric pressure not provided

The decomposition was observed at following temperatures:

 

Sample 1     T > 294 °C

Sample 2     T > 297 °C

The overall decomposition temperature was reported to be > 295°C.

Conclusions:
decomposition before boiling
decomposition: at a temperature of > 295°C
Executive summary:

Since Fenuron decomposes at > 295°C before reaching the boiling point, a boiling point could not be determined.

Description of key information

decomposition before boiling

decomposition: at a temperature of > 295°C

Key value for chemical safety assessment
