Description of key information

The flash point for benzonitrile is reported to be between 66 and 75°C. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
66 °C

Additional information

The flash point reported by different references is in the range between 66 and 75 °C.

As the flash point (66 °C) reported by SKW Trostberg AG corresponds to information provided by the GESTIS Substance Database (67 °C, closed cup), which is a official database and therefore deemed to be reliable, this value is chosen as key value for the chemical safety assessment.
