Description of key information

The freezing point is <-20°C for 2-methylbutane, based on literature values.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The freezing point is <-20°C for 2-methylbutane, based on literature values. This value has been agreed by the consortium to represent the category. This is supported by a value of -159.77°C from the CRC Handbook (Lide 2008). There is no information available on the methods used to determine the value for this endpoint. However, the CRC Handbook is considered to be a reliable, peer-reviewed handbook and suitable for use as a study for this endpoint.
