Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Physical state (Alcohols, C9-11-branched and linear): liquid

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:

Additional information

Alcohols, C9-11-branched and linear is described as a clear liquid at standard temperature and pressure, as part of the test substance description of a study conducted with this test material.

Discussion of trends in the Category of C6-24 linear and essentially-linear aliphatic alcohols:

Linear alcohols up to C11 are liquids at 20°C when in their pure state. Between C12-24 they are waxy solids (though crystalline forms can be prepared by precipitation from certain organic solvents). Isomeric alcohols, with a branch present, melt at slightly lower temperatures than their linear equivalents. Commercial products which are mixtures of alcohols behave differently, some are liquid and some are amorphous solid, depending on the composition and chain lengths present.
