Reference
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
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:
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-ethoxybenzoic acid
- Molecular formula: C9H10O3
- Molecular weight: 166.175 g/mol
- Smiles notation: CCOc1ccccc1C(=O)O
- InChl: 1S/C9H10O3/c1-2-12-8-6-4-3-5-7(8)9(10)11/h3-6H,2H2,1H3,(H,10,11)

Key result
Test procedure:
other: not specified
Remarks on result:
other: 2-ethoxybenzoic acid 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-ethoxybenzoic acid 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-ethoxybenzoic acid is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus 2-ethoxybenzoic acid was considered non-flammable.
Executive summary:

2-ethoxybenzoic acid 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-ethoxybenzoic acid is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus 2-ethoxybenzoic acid was considered non-flammable.
