The lower and upper explosion limits of m xylene are 1.1-7%, o xylene are 0.9-6.7% and p xylene are 1.1-7%.
The CRC Handbook (Lide, 2008) is a peer
reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use
as the key study for this endpoint.
The flammability of liquids is determined on
the basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point),
their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their
pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of the xylene isomers does not
contain any groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or
pyrophoric properties and handling of the substance indicates that this
is the case. The flashpoint indicates that xylene isomers will be
classified as a Category 3 flammable liquid with the hazard statement
'flammable liquid and vapour' under the CLP Regulations.
