Description of key information

The melting point of benzene is 5.49˚C at standard pressure

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
5.49 °C

Additional information

The CRC Handbook is a peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint. The supporting study (Merck 2006) is also a peer reviewed handbook and supports the value reported in the key study, giving a melting point of 5.5°C.
