Description of key information

Relative density [furan]: 0.937 at 19.4°C, 0.951 at 20°C (Handbook)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:

Additional information

Two reliable relative density values are available for the substance. Relative density values of 0.937 at 19.4°C (Stecher 1968)

and 0.951 at 20°C (Haynes 2010) were reported in handbooks or collection of reliable data which has been subject to peer review and in which the original sources are traceable. The results are considered reliable and used as weight of evidence. In a secondary source to which no reliability could be assigned, relative density density of 0.94 (Pennakem 2011) was reported for the substance.
