Executive summary:

Density of hexylene glycol was sourced from CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics and Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials, which used primary and peer-reviewed sources. Density of hexylene glycol is reported to be 0.923 g/cm3(923 g/L) at 15°C

Description of key information

Density of hexylene glycol is reported to be 0.923 g/cm3(923 g/L) at 15°C and 0.9234 (923 g/L) at 20°C/20°C, respectively.

Information regarding density of hexylene glycol was sourced from various handbooks or review articles including ACGIH (2001), CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics (81st Ed.), Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials (7thEd.), and Patty's Industrial Hygiene and Toxicology (4th Ed.). However, Patty’s Industrial Hygiene and Toxicology and ACGIH cite secondary sources that are not peer-reviewed, and thus, are not considered valid. Instead, density and relative density of hexylene glycol were sourced from CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics and Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials, respectively, which used primary and peer-reviewed sources. Density of hexylene glycol is reported to be 0.923 g/cm3(923 g/L) at 15°C and 0.9234 (923 g/L) at 20°C/20°C, respectively.
