Executive summary:

The self-ignition temperature of DL-Menthol was determined according to EU Method A.15 (Auto-Iginition Temperature (Liquids and Gases)) to be 265 °C at 1019 hPa.

Description of key information

The self-ignition temperature of DL-Menthol was determined according to EU Method A.15 (Auto-Ignition Temperature (Liquids and Gases)) to be 265 °C at 1019 hPa. It was assumed that the reported atmospheric pressure shows no significant discrepancy to the normal pressure at 1013 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
265 °C

Additional information

Another study determined the self-ignition temperature of raw Menthol according to EU Method A.15 (Auto-Ignition Temperature (Liquids and Gases)) as 260 °C at 1014 hPa (Currenta, 2010).
