Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

According to Degussa (1985) and Demangel (2010), the auto flammability of MITC (methyl isothiocyanate) occurred at ca 365°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
365 °C

Additional information

Two references to the auto flammability was found:

  • According to Degussa (1985), the auto flammability of MITC (methyl isothiocyanate) occurred at 370°C. Nevertheless, no data is given in or order to challenge the validity of this result.
  • According to EU Method A.15 (Auto-Ignition Temperature (Liquids and Gases)) on behalf of MLPC in 2010, the mean self ignition temperature of the test item EKALAND MITC W (Methyl isothiocyanate) was: 356 ± 5 °C (corrected value).

As a consequence, self ignition temperature of MITC (methyl isothiocyanate) is about 365°C.
