According to RAR HSE/UK 2003:
The flammability (explosive limits by volume of fuel at 25 °C and 760 mm
Hg) for naphthalene have been quoted at 0.9 (lower) to 5.9 (higher) in
Lange's Handbook (1992) and Kirk-Othmer (1991) where the original
reference is to data obtained by the US Bureau of Mines (Jones and
Scott, 1946) using reagent grade naphthalene (melting point = 79-81 °C).
This range is also quoted in the American Petroleum Institute monograph
on naphthalene (1978).
The same range for explosive limits is mentioned by Nabert and Schon
Although the test figures do have some variance this is likely to be due
to a combination of the purity of the naphthalene used in the tests and
the exact method used.
Naphthalene can be considered as capable of forming explosive mixtures
with air in particulate or vapour form.
