Description of key information

The melting point of the substance was found to lie between 188 - 190 °C. 189 °C would be the midpoint of this range, so can be considered as an arbitrary key value for the assessment; Harper et al. (2005), Dobson et al. (2006), Walterson et al. (1994), Hoch (2001), Summer et al. (2003), Ciba-Geigy (1981) in OECD SIDS (2006), Syracuse Research Corporation in OECD SIDS (2006).

189 °C

Additional information

A number of public domain references were obtained with all data were assigned a reliability score of 4 in accordance with the principles for assessing data quality as outlined in Klimisch (1997). No single study was robust enough to be considered a key study and therefore a weight of evidence approach was used to address the endpoint. The melting point of dimethyltin dichloride was found to lie between 188 - 190 °C.
