Measurement

(repeat determination)

Observed Boiling Point: 562.0°F / 562.0°F

Barometric Pressure: 763 mm Hg / 761 mm Hg

Equilibrium Boiling Point (Corrected): 561.5°F / 562.0°F

Conclusions:
A boiling point value of 294 °C at atmospheric pressure, no decomposition was determined for the substance using a relevant test method. The result is considered to be reliable.
Executive summary:

Tetradecanol was determined according ASTM D1120. The boiling point was determined to be 562 °F (=294 °C) at atmospheric pressure.

Description of key information

The boiling point of tetradecan-1-ol is 294°C at 1013 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
294 °C

Additional information

A boiling point value of 294°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the substance in accordance with ASTM-D1120. The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study.

It is supported by a value of 289°C taken from a reliable handbook, and a consistent result from another secondary source of non assignable reliability.

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

As chain length increases, boiling point increases. This is because molecular weight is higher and intermolecular forces in the substance are all higher. There is some evidence for decomposition before boiling for the longest chain alcohols in this group.
