Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Additional information

The estimation of vapour pressure (as well as melting and boiling point) can be done by the MPBPWIN program (v 1.43) made available by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This program requires just the input of the chemical structure of the desired compound by SMILES notation and is a scientifically accepted calculation method. The calculation is done by three different methods: Antoine, Modified Grain and Mackay, whereby the Modified Grain method is preferentially utilized. By taking this method into account and using an estimated boiling point of 459.56 °C, pure Choline carbonate has a vapour pressure of 9.13 * E-10 Pa / 6.85 * E-12 mm Hg at 25 °C.

As the substance is marketed as an 75 % aqueous solution, which is therefore the predominantly available form, it is justified out of scientific reasons and exposure considerations to regard Choline carbonate as aqueous solution. Hence, the vapour pressure was calculated using Raoult´s law and an experimental vapor pressure value for water of 3172.5 Pa at 25 °C, resulting in a calculated vapour pressure of 2390.4 Pa at 25 °C. This value is in the scientifically expected range as it is close to the vapour pressure of water.

The outcome of this study is considered reasonable, within the scientifically expected ranges and can be used for further risk assessment.

Due to the reliability of the results, as they were gained by a scientifically accepted calculation method, with regard to the predominantly existing form of Choline carbonate, i.e. a 75 % aqueous solution, the tonnage-driven requirements under REACH are fully met, no datagaps were identified and no further testing is required.
