Description of key information

-8°C (handbook data)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-8 °C

Additional information

No experimental data is available for the melting point of heptanoic acid. As the three data coming from the literature are in the same range (between -8°C and -7,5°C) it is assumed to use these data (weight of evidence approach).

The data coming from the handbook "Perfume and Flavor Chemicals (Aroma Chemicals) II" is considered as the key parameter.
