The self ignition temperature of formaldehyde is determined to be ca 395 °C
According to a study from BASF (1996,
Key) the self iginition was determined (according to DIN 51794) to be
395 °C. This result is supported by the following handbook data
which report the following values: CRC (2010), Knovel (2012),
RömppChemie (2015) report a self-ignition temperature of 424 °C.
Gestis (2015), and Ullmanns (2012) report a self ignition temperature of
430 °C. The Merck Index (2013) reports a self-ignition temperature of
300 °C. Based on these data the self ignition temperature of
formaldehyde is determined to be ca 395 °C
