Description of key information

Not considered as explosive but EUH044 is applicable "Risk of explosion if heated under confinement"

2-EHN is stable at ambient temperatures, however it will decompose when heated above 100°C. This temperature is significantly lower than auto-ignition temperature of normal hydrocarbons and represents a key factor in designing equipment dedicated to storage, handling and transportation of 2-EHN.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive
