Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Remarks on result:
other: + / - 0.1 Pa

At the beginning of the test, the vapour pressure of the test substance decreased slightly every next measurement, due to the removal of volatile impurities. After measurement 20, this decrease became negligible and the vapour pressure was stable. So from that moment on, the collected data were used for the final result.

For each temperature, a selected number of measurements was used for the calculations:

 Measurement  Temperature [°C]  Mean vapour pressure ln(p)  Mean vapour pressure [Pa]
 24 - 65  38.82  2.59 +/- 0.01  13.3 +/- 0.2
 80 - 104  31.77  1.77 +/- 0.02  5.85 +/- 0.09
 122 - 156  24.72  0.88 +/- 0.02  2.25 +/- 0.05

Fitting these data according to Clark & Glew gives a value of 1.21 Pa (+/- 0.12 Pa) = 9.0E-03 mm Hg (+/- 0.7E-03 mm Hg) for the vapour pressure of test substance at 20 °C.

Description of key information

1.2 Pa at 20 °C

(EU Method A.4, static method)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Vapour pressure:
1.2 Pa
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

The vapour pressure of sodium 2-biphenylate (hydrated form) was determined by static method according EU Method A.4 to be 1.2 Pa at 20 °C. In a supporting thermogravimetric study the test substance did not show a detectable vapour pressure at a temperature between 20 and 70 °C. A mass-reduction of the sample in a temperature range of 52 - 62 °C is caused by the removal of crystal water.
