German term or phrase: Kofler Bank
Unter Physikalische und Chemische Eigenschaften eines Produktes gibt es die “Zustandsänderung” Der Wert dieser Eigenschaft ist 150 bis 156oC erwähnt. Aber Nach diesen Figuren hat die Firma in den Datenblatt Kofler Bank (OECD 102) gedruckt. Kann jemand mir sagen was der Ausdruck Kofler Bank bedeutet?

Von Schwefel existieren zwei Hauptmodifikationen, monokliner und rhombischer Schwefel. Rhombischer Schwefel ist unter 98°C die thermodynamisch stabile Modifikation, monokliner Schwefel wandelt sich unterhalb von 98°C langsam in rhombischen Schwefel um.
Die beiden Schwefelmodifikationen lassen sich im polarisierten Licht unterscheiden. Um zunächst monoklinen Schwefel zu erhalten wird eine Spatelspitze Schwefelblüte auf eine Glasplatte gegeben und dieses dann auf einer Kofler-Bank geschmolzen.
