Reference
Endpoint:
flammability
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
comparable to guideline study
Justification for type of information:
Experimental test result performed using standard test guidelines
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
other: It is how easily substance can burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion by brief contact with an ignition source.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
It is how easily substance can burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion by brief contact with an ignition source
GLP compliance:
not specified
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material: 2,3-Dimethylphenol
- Molecular formula: C8 H10 O
- Molecular weight: 122.166 g/mol
- Smiles notation : c1(c(cccc1O)C)C
- InChl : 1S/C8H10O/c1-6-4-3-5-8(9)7(6)2/h3-5,9H,1-2H3
- Substance type: Organic
- Physical state: Liquid
Test procedure:
other: not specified
Remarks on result:
other: 2,3-Dimethylphenol not ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C was brought in contact with it.
Interpretation of results:
other: non flammable
Conclusions:
2,3-Dimethylphenol does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that 2,3-Dimethylphenol is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus 2,3-Dimethylphenolwas considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
Executive summary:

2,3-Dimethylphenol does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that 2,3-Dimethylphenol is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus 2,3-Dimethylphenolwas considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
