Key result
Melting / freezing pt.:
-43.5 °C
Executive summary:

The peer-reviewed CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics provides a normal Melting Point of -43.5°C for the substance 2,2,2-Trifluoroethanol.

Description of key information

Literature data: -43.5°C (CRC), -44°C (Gestis), -43.5°C (SRC)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-43.7 °C

Additional information

No experimental study is available. Literature data from one handbook and two databases provide consistent data. As the substance is liquid at ambient temperature, data may be considered as freezing points rather than true melting points.

The retained key value will be the arithmetic mean of the values.
