Endpoint:
flash point
Type of information:
other: presumably experimental
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Peer reviewed data from HSDB. HSDB database is referred to as reliable source in Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, Table R.7.1-2 Sources of physico-chemical data.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
no further information available
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point:

Remarks on result:
other: closed cup
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test substance diethyl carbonate has been determined according to the closed cup method. The value is 25 °C.
Endpoint:
flash point
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Bretherick’s Handbook of Chemical Reactive Hazards is referred to as reliable source in Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, Table R.7.1-2 Sources of physico-chemical data.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
No further information on the conducted test procedure
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
closed cup

The flash point of the test material diethyl carbonate has been determined to be 25 °C.
Endpoint:
flash point
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
Accepted encyclopedia for a wide range of chemicals, drugs and biologicals; no further information on the conducted test procedure. The Merck Index is referred to as reliable source in Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, Table R.7.1-2 Sources of physico-chemical data.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
no further information on the conducted test procedure
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point:
25 °C
Remarks on result:
other: flash has been determined to be 77 °F which corresponds to 25 °C
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test substance diethylcarbonate has been determined to be 25 °C in a closed cup.
Endpoint:
flash point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
disregarded due to major methodological deficiencies
Reliability:
3 (not reliable)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: "Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance" from ECHA (May 2008) recommends not to use flash point data determined by the open cup method.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
no further information on the conducted test procedure.
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
open cup
Flash point:
115 °F
Remarks on result:
other: 115 °F corresponds to 46.11 °C
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test substance diethyl carbonate has been determined in an open cup. The value is 115 °F which corresponds to 46.11 °C.
Endpoint:
flash point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
disregarded due to major methodological deficiencies
Reliability:
3 (not reliable)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
The cited handbook is not referred to as reliable source in Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, Table R.7.1-2 Sources of physico-chemical data. No further information are given on the conducted method; according the determined value (compare 4.11.004) probably the open cup method was used. "Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance" from ECHA (May 2008) recommends not to use flash point data determined by the open cup method.
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
other: no data
Flash point:
48 °C
Remarks on result:
other: no further information on conducted method; according to the value (see endpoint record 4.11.004) probably determined in open cup
Endpoint:
flash point
Adequacy of study:
disregarded due to major methodological deficiencies
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
Sax’s Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials is referred to as reliable source in Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, Table R.7.1-2 Sources of physico-chemical data. "Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance" from ECHA (May 2008) recommends not to use flash point data determined by the open cup method.
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
open cup
Flash point:
77 °F
Remarks on result:
other: no further information; flash point in °C: 25
Conclusions:
The flash point of the test substance diethyl carbonate has been determined by the open cup method to be 77 °F (25 °C).
