boiling point
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because chemical change occurred during the melting point study

Description of key information

>300 ºC, decomposition probable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
300 °C

Additional information

This property shows a correlation between molecular weight / chain length and boiling point. Measured boiling points for methyl esters of fatty acids prove this correlation. Fatty acid esters of a molecular weight > 300 amu and aβ-hydrogen in the alcohol chain (≥ 3 C) have a boiling point > 300 °C and decompose before boiling.
