A perturbative QCD analysis of the nucleon's Pauli form factor F 2(Q2) in the asymptotically large Q2 limit, was performed. It was found that the leading contribution to F 2(Q2) has a 1/Q6 power behavior. It was shown that with the new result for F2(Q2), its scaling up to logarithmic accuracy can be determined.
