Description of key information

The density of nitromethane was determined and, considering the density of water at 4°C as being 1 g/ml, the relative density of nitromethane is found to be 1.138.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
1.138

Additional information

The density of nitromethane was determined to be 1.13816 g/ml and considering the density of water at 4°C as being 1 g/ml, the relative density of nitromethane was found to be 1.138. Another reference in a peer reviewed handbook gives a value of 1.137, which is close enough to the result of our study.
