Specific details on test material used for the study:
Name of the test chemical: Tetraethylammonium chloride
Molecular formula:C8H20ClN
Molecular weight: 165.706 g/mol
Smiles Notation: [N+](CC)(CC)(CC)CC.[ClH-]
InChI: 1S/C8H20N.ClH/c1-5-9(6-2,7-3)8-4;/h5-8H2,1-4H3;1H/q+1;/p-1
Substance Type: Organic

Key result
Remarks on result:
other: Tetraethylammonium chloride ignites only when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950°C is brought in contact with it.Thus it can be concluded that substance is flammable only at high temperature of about 950°C.
Conclusions:
Tetraethylammonium chloride did not catch fire on being exposed to air at room temperature of 27°C pressure of 966 hPa. This indicates that Tetraethylammonium chloride is not auto-flammable.
Executive summary:

Tetraethylammonium chloride did not catch fire on being exposed to air at room temperature of 27°C pressure of 966 hPa. This indicates that Tetraethylammonium chloride is not auto-flammable.
