Executive summary:

Tetradecanol was determined according ASTM E 659. The selfignition point was determined to be 259 °C at atmospheric pressure.

Description of key information

The auto-ignition temperature of tetradecan-1-ol is 259°C at 1013 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
259 °C

Additional information

An auto-ignition temperature value of 259°C at 1013 hPa was determined in accordance with ASTM E 659. The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study.

Discussion of trends in the Category of C6-24 linear and essentially-linear aliphatic alcohols:

As carbon number increases, auto-ignition temperature generally decreases. Molecular weight is higher and intermolecular forces in the substance are all higher.
