Description of key information

Phenetole was considered non-flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

From the experimental value of flammability, phenetole ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950 degC was brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that phenetole is flammable only at high temperature of about 950 degC. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, phenetole was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
