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

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
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)
