Description of key information

The dissociation constant of p-cresol is 10.26 at 25°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

pKa at 20°C:
10.26

Additional information

There is only a value at 25°C available. It is assumed that change in pKa is not a very sensitive function of temperature, and the value at 25°C is therefore assigned to a temperature of 20°C.

p-Cresol is a weak acid. The pKa value of 10.26 indicate that at environmentally relevant pH values (5 - 9) the substance is largely non-dissociated.
