Executive summary:

Information regarding auto flammability of hexylene glycol was sourced from CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics (81st Ed.), which used primary and peer-reviewed sources, and thus is considered valid. The autoignition temperature is reported to be 306ºC (579.15 K), however, the method used to determine the auto flammability or the atmospheric pressure were not reported.

Description of key information
