Reference
Endpoint:
boiling point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Data published in peer-reviewed literature.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
A test guideline is not mentioned in the literature (handbook data, peer- reviewed)
Type of method:
other: not known - Peer reviewed handbook
Boiling pt.:
117 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Remarks on result:
other: critical study for SIDS endpoint
Conclusions:
Various handbooks report deviating b.p.s. The Verschueren handbook reports 116-117°C, which is found to be a boiling range, considering that the purity of Epichlorohydrin may vary.

Description of key information

The boiling point for Epichlorohydrin was determined as 117 °C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
390.15 K

Additional information

Verschueren reports the boiling point for Epichlorohydrin is 117 °C, no pressure given. The MERCK Index reports 117.9 °C at 760 Torr. Verschueren data have been used in the IARC monograph for epichlorohydrin. No handbook provides details about the purity of the tested material. No handbook provides details about the test method.
