Key result
Boiling pt.:
213 °C
Atm. press.:
101.325 kPa
Decomposition:
no
Remarks on result:
other: An endothermic peak at 215 °C with an extrapolated onset temperature of 213 °C at atmospheric pressure indicates the boiling point.The atmospheric pressure was not reported but is assumed to be standard.
Conclusions:
The boiling point was determined to be 213 °C.
Executive summary:

The boiling point of 2-Hydroxyethyl methacrylate was tested acc. OECD 103 by DSC method. The boiling point was determined to be 213 °C.

Description of key information

The boiling point of HEMA is 213°C at 1013 hPa (OECD Guideline 103/EU Method A.2).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
213 °C

Additional information

The key value of 213 °C is supported by a measured value of CSCL (Japan, 1992) of 211 °C.
