Remarks on result:
not determinable
Executive summary:

No melting was observed when substance was analysed with Melting Point device MPD02 up to 300 C.

Thermogravimetric analysis was also performed and it was observed that between 100 °C. – approx. 400 °C the substance suffers a further dehydration process, followed most likely, by the decomposition of the sodium lactate ligand (organic part).

Oxidation will occur at higher temperatures

During normal use and handling, and certainly under biological and environmental conditions, there substance will remain solid.

Description of key information

Dcomposes > 300 C (oxidation)

Key value for chemical safety assessment
