comparable to guideline study
Justification for type of information:
Experimental test result performed using standard test guidelines
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: It is how easily substance can burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion by brief contact with an ignition source.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
It is how easily substance can burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion by brief contact with an ignition source
GLP compliance:
not specified
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Name of test material : 2-hydroxy-p-toluic acid (m cresotic acid)
Molecular formula :C8H8O3
Molecular weight :152.148 g/mol
Smiles notation :Cc1ccc(c(c1)O)C(=O)O
InChl :1S/C8H8O3/c1-5-2-3-6(8(10)11)7(9)4-5/h2-4,9H,1H3,(H,10,11)

Key result
Test procedure:
other: not specified
Remarks on result:
other:
Remarks:
2-hydroxy-p-toluic acid not ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C was brought in contact with it.
Interpretation of results:
other: non flammable
Conclusions:
2-hydroxy-p-toluic acid does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that 2-hydroxy-p-toluic acid is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus 2-hydroxy-p-toluic acid was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
Executive summary:

2-hydroxy-p-toluic acid does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that 2-hydroxy-p-toluic acid is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus 2-hydroxy-p-toluic acid was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
