Physical & Chemical properties

Endpoint summary

Administrative data

Description of key information

Physico-chemical properties of the substance were determined from experimental testing, except Vapour Pressure and Auto-Ignition Temperature that were derived from an analogue substance. Some endpoints were waived, based on the chemical structure.

The substance is liquid at ambient temperature, less dense than water, and with low volatility.

In water, very low solubility and no surface-active properties are anticipated.

It has potential for bioaccumulation and aquatic chronic toxicity, based on CLP criteria.

It is NOT classified as dangerous with regard to physical hazards, based on CLP criteria.
