Description of key information

The flammability of a substance is determined following the methods N.1 (UN-manual of testing) or A.10 (EU-method). 
However, in accordance with section 2 of REACH Annex XI, a study is technically not feasible as the substance is a liquid. The flammability of a liquid is described by the flash point.
Based on experience in production or handling, Benzyldimethylamine has no pyrophoric properties (Currenta, 2010).
Based on the structural formula, Benzyldimethylamine does not emit flammable gases on contact with water (Currenta, 2010).
