Executive summary:

Based on the read-across from the analogue substance d-limonene, the flash point of l-limonene is estimated to be 51°C.

Description of key information

Key study: Read-across from the analogue substance d-limonene. Flash point of l-limonene : 51°C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
51 °C

Additional information

The flash point of l-limonene was derived from a study performed according to ASTM D 3828-97 method and EU method A.9 on d-limonene.

The value was considered with a reliability of 2 (reliable with restrictions) because the result is scientifically acceptable but not obtained under GLP and some details were lacking in the report. However the measured flash point is valid for key value and the result is supported by similar data from secondary literature.
