Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

The melting point of Epichlorohydrin is measured to be 57.1°C.

Description of key information

The melting point of Epichlorohydrin is measured to be 57.1°C according to two key studies published in Kirk-Othmer (KS-001) and DIPPR (KS-006)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

216.05 K

Additional information

Reliable m.p. data of -57°C and -57.1°C from two published handbooks (Kirk Othmer and DIPPR), supported by -57.2°C (Verschueren and CRC Handbook of Physical Properties of Organic Chemicals).

There are unreliable data in other published handbooks: -25.6°C (Merck Index and Verschueren), -48°C (CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics)
