Description of key information

Ethyl-(S)-lactate is auto-ignitable with an auto-ignition temperature of 430 °C (at 1016-1024 hPa).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
430 °C

Additional information

The atmospheric pressure during the performance of the study was between 1016.3 and 1024.1 hPa.

The reported auto-ignition temperature is the lowest temperature at which auto-ignition was recorded (rounded). The unrounded values for the lowest auto-ignition temperature ranged from 434 to 439 °C in three tests. The reported minimum auto-ignition temperature of 430 °C is expected to be valid at the slightly lower standard pressure of 1013.25 hPa as well.
