flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with national standard methods with acceptable restrictions
Test procedure in accordance with national standard methods (ASTM) without GLP.
according to guideline
ASTM D93 (Standard test methods for flash point by pensky-martens closed cup tester)
Version / remarks:
2002. Remark: ASTM-D93
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
non-equilibrium method closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Pensky-Martens apparatus
Key result
Flash point:
210 °C
Atm. press.:
102.3 kPa

Measurement parameters

Rotation Speed of the Sample Stirrer:100 rpm

Expected Flash Point of Sample: 227.0°C


(repeat determination)

Temperature of Initial Ignition Source Application:170.0°C / 170.0°C

Atmospheric Pressure:102.8 kPa / 102.3 kPa

Flash Point (Uncorrected):179.4°C / 176.7°C

Flash Point (Corrected):179.0°C / 176.5°C

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
A flash point value of 210°C at standard pressure was determined for the substance using a relevant test method. The result is considered to be reliable.
Executive summary:

Docosan-1 -ol was determined according ASTM D 93. The Flash point was determined to be 210°C at atmospheric pressure.

Description of key information

The flash point of docosan-1-ol is 210°C at 1013 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
210 °C

Additional information

A flash point of 210°C at 1013 hPa was determined for docosan-1-ol using a non-equilibrium closed-cup method in accordance with ASTM-D93. The result is considered to be reliable.

A flash point value of 210°C indicates that docosan-1-ol should not be classified for flammability in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.

Discussion of trends in the Category of C6-24 linear and essentially-linear aliphatic alcohols:

The flash point of Category substances follow a predictable trend of increasing flash point temperature with increasing chain length together with increasing boiling point and decreasing vapour pressure.
