Reference
Endpoint:
auto-ignition temperature (liquids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2009
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study with acceptable restrictions
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.15 (Auto-Ignition Temperature (Liquids and Gases))
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to
Guideline:
other: DIN 51794
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
no
Auto-ignition temperature:
545 °C
Remarks on result:
other: atmospheric pressure is assumed

Pressure not reported. Atmospheric pressure is assumed.

Conclusions:
The auto-ignition temperature of the substance was measured at 545 °C. Atmospheric pressure is assumed. Due to this high value, ditolyl ether is not to be regarded as auto-flammable under standard conditions.
Executive summary:

The auto-ignition temperature was determined according to EU guideline A.15 (DIN 51794) and a value of 545 °C was measured. Atmospheric pressure is assumed. Due to this high value, the substance is not to be regarded as auto-flammable under standard conditions.

Description of key information

The auto-ignition temperature of the substance was measured as 545 °C. Due to this high value, ditolyl ether is not to be regarded as auto-flammable under standard conditions.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
