Description of key information

The density of tetradecan-1-ol is 0.9048 g/cm³ at 16°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
0.905

Additional information

A density value of 0.9048 g/cm³ at 16°C was determined for the substance using a pycnometer method in accordance with ASTM D70. The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study.

It is supported by a relative density value of 0.8236 at 38°C, taken from a reliable handbook, and a consistent result from another secondary sources.

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

The relative density values are similar across the category. Values are consistently within the range 0.80 - 0.90 at ambient temperature.
