Description of key information

A trend of increasing boiling point with increasing carbon number is seen for category members.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Boiling point increases with increasing carbon number across the category, with a very similar trend for both the alpha olefins and olefins. Data is available for category members with carbon numbers of C6 to C30. At C6 boiling point is around 60°C. At C24 boiling point is around 350°C. Data on olefins with a carbon number range C24 -20 indicates that decomposition occurred before boiling.
