Reference
Endpoint:
auto-flammability
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
13 March - 15 May, 2007
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Remarks:
Study has been performed according to OECD and/or EU guidelines and according to GLP principles.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.15 (Auto-Ignition Temperature (Liquids and Gases))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Key result
Auto-ignition temperature:
195 °C
Atm. press.:
>= 1 001 - <= 1 035 hPa

The lowest measured auto-ignition temperature is 198°C. This temperature was rounded down to the nearest 5°C giving the auto-ignition temperature for the test substance (i.e. 195°C).

Conclusions:
Ditetrahydrofurylpropane is auto-ignitable with an auto-ignition temperature of 195°C.

Description of key information

Test performed according to EC A.15

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
195 °C

Additional information

Although the substance is auto-ignitable at 195°C, it will not be classified as self-heating since the phenomenon applies only to solids (i.e. the surface for reaction with air is not large enough) and the test method used to meet the CLP requirements is not applicable to liquids.
