Administrative data

flash point of flammable liquids
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is inorganic
the study does not need to be conducted because the flash point is only relevant to liquids and low melting point solids
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
data waiving: supporting information

Combining three handbook results, calcium nitrate could be described as white to colourless cubic hygroscopic crystals (anhydrous form) or deliquescent granules (tetrahydrate form).

Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:

Handbooks used:

-The CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics (80th ed.) describes calcium nitrate (anhydrous) as white cubic hygroscopic crystals.

-The Merck Index (12th ed.) describes calcium nitrate tetrahydrate as deliquesc granules.

-Sax's Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials (9th. ed.) describes calcium nitrate (anhydrous) as colourless cubic hygroscopic crystals.
