Description of key information

Boiling point: Decomposes without boiling

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A secondary source to which reliability could not be assigned indicates that the substance decomposes without boiling. This is consistent with the result for the parent acid of trisodium citrate, citric acid, which also decomposes before boiling. A metal salt would be expected to boil at a higher temperature than its parent acid and, therefore, decomposition before boiling can also be predicted for trisodium citrate.
