Description of key information

Viscosity [furan]: 0.361 mPa s at 25°C (Handbook)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

0.361 mPa · s (dynamic)
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

Viscosity values of 0.361 mPa.s at 25°C, 0.475 mPa.s at 0°C and 0.661 mPa.s at -25°C were reported for the substance in a handbook or collection of reliable data which hasve been subject to peer review and in which the original sources are traceable (Haynes 2010).

In a secondary source to which no reliability could be assigned, viscosity of 0.38 mPa.s (Pennakem 2011) was reported for the substance.
