Description of key information

The melting point of 1,2-dimethylimidazole is 38°C at 1013hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
38 °C

Additional information

The melting point of 1,2-dimethylimidazole was reported from different reliable literature sources (Knovel DOSE, GESTIS, Hommel) to be 37 -39 °C. In addition the melting point was determined to be -38°C in a BASF study (SIK 84/1193).

The melting point of 38 °C was taken as key parameter because it originate from an experimental study.
