Answer:

See here for the wiki article.

Explanation:

This is a reasonably large molecule, and the boiling point is similarly large. The link reports a boiling point of #218# #""^@C# AT A PRESSURE of #1.5*mm*Hg#. That is its vapour pressure at this temperature #-=1.5*mm*Hg#.

The normal boiling point, i.e. when its vapour pressure #-=# #760*mm*Hg# (this after all is the definition of the #"normal boiling point"#) would be very high, and it might not be obtainable without decomposition.

You satisfied with this?
