Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Using a weight of evidence, the vapour pressure of arsenic acid was considered to be 18.45 hPa at 25 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Vapour pressure:
18.45 hPa
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

Two secondary bibliographic sources provide vapour pressure (VP) values for arsenic acid. As the primary reference is not traceable, both references are quoted by reliability score of 4 (not assignable). The available values are reported below:

(1) VP = 55 mbar at 50°C and VP = 110 mbar at 65°C

(2) VP = 12.58 hPa at 15°C

The vapour pressure may vary greatly according temperature. For the purpose of the chemical safety assessment, VP values at 25°C are predicted using the equation recommended in EUSES Software version 2.1: VPtempx = VPtemptest x e{ (H0_VP/R) x (1/Temptest – 1/Tempx) } 


Tempx: temperature of 25°C (equal to 298.15 K)

Temptest: temperature of the measured physico-chemical data (15°C = 288.15 K; 50°C = 323.15 K)

H0_VP: enthalpy of vaporisation (value: 5.104 J.mol-1)

R: Gas constant (value: 8.314 Pa.m3.mol-1.K-1)

Values of extrapolated vapour pressure:

(1) Input 55 mbar at 50°C, Output: 11.5 hPa at 25°C

(2) Input 12.58 hPa at 15°C, Output: 25.4 hPa at 25°C


Both values are in the same order of magnitude. Using a weight of evidence, the arithmetic mean of the two values is proposed as key value for the chemical safety assessment: VP25°C = 18.45 hPa
