Description of key information

The melting point of the substance is -67,5°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-67.5 °C

Additional information

Several reliable literature sources report the melting point of 2 -chloroethanol to be between -62,6 °C and -70 °C. The value which originates from HSDB which is a peer reviewed data base is -67,5 °C. Thus a melting point of -67,5°C at ambient pressure is regarded to be reliable for 2 -chloroethanol.
