Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
no guideline available
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The use of secondary sources of data is acceptable when they are based on a critical evaluation of peer-reviewed data and a consequent selection of a reliable and representative value for the property under investigation. The introduction to the Merck Index states that physical data are cited as found in the literature. Therefore, although the method used is not known, the values presented here are acceptable as they are from a reliable secondary source of phys chem. data. This information is taken from the Merck index and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint.
GLP compliance:
not specified
