Description of key information

Boiling point: 105 °C (100%, calculated)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
105 °C

Additional information

Pure peracetic acid explodes when heated to about 100 to 110 °C. In addition, contact with metal ions or organic materials can cause explosions. However, Peracetic acid solution containing less than 45 % can be handled safely.

Commercial solutions have a boiling point of about 100 °C or slightly above which may be caused by the water content.

Based on modelling, the boiling point was estimated to be about 105 °C
