Type of method:
closed cup
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): Isopentyl Benzoate
- Molecular formula: C12 H16 O2
- Molecular weight : 192.256 g/mol
- Smiles notation: c1(C(OCCC(C)C)=O)ccccc1
- InChl : 1S/C12H16O2/c1-10(2)8-9-14-12(13)11-6-4-3-5-7-11/h3-7,10H,8-9H2,1-2H3
- Substance type: organic
- Physical state: Liquid
Flash point:
115.3 °C
Atm. press.:
979.4 hPa
Interpretation of results:
other: non-flammable
Conclusions:
The mean flash point of Isopentyl Benzoate(CAS No. 94-46-2) is 115.3°C at 979.4hPa.
Executive summary:

The flash point determination of Isopentyl Benzoate (CAS No. 94-46-2)was done following closed cup method using Pensky-Martens flash point apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and mean flash point was found to be 115.3°C at 979.4hPa. Based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point >than 60 degree C hence the substance was considered to be non-flammable.

Additional information

The flash point determination of Isopentyl Benzoate (CAS No. 94-46-2) was done following closed cup method using Pensky-Martens flash point apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and mean flash point was determined to be 115.3°C at 979.4hPa.As it was experimental report hence, considered as a key study. Which was supported by authoritative handbook (CAS No. 94-46-2) from which the flash point of Isopentyl Benzoate was determined to be 100 degree C. Based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point >than 60 degree C hence the substance was considered to be non-flammable.
