Description of key information

Appearance / physical state / colour:

The physical appearance of Cinnamyl formate was observed to be Colorless to yellowish liquid organic compound with balsamic, fruital-floral odor.

Melting point/ Freezing point:

The freezing point of Cinnamyl formate was determined to be 0.00 °C.

Boiling point:

The boiling point of Cinnamyl formate was determined to be 250°C.

Density:

The density of Cinnamyl formate was determined to be 1.075-1.082 g/cm3.

Particle size distribution (Granulometry):

In accordance with column 2 of Annex VII of the REAcH regulation this end point was considered for waiver since the chemical Cinnamyl formate is a liquid and is expected to be marketed or used in a non solid or granular form.

Vapour pressure:

The estimated vapour pressure of the substance Cinnamyl formate at 25 deg C was 3.26 Pa.

Partition coefficient:

Octanol water partition coefficient of the (2E)-3-phenylprop-2-en-1-yl formate (CAS no. 104 -65 -4) was estimated. The estimated log POW of the (2E)-3-phenylprop-2-en-1-yl formate was 2.30. On the basis of estimated value, the 2-phenylethyl pentanoate can be considered as s hydrophillic in nature.

Water solubility:

The water sollubility of Cinnamyl formate was estimated as 725.1 mg/l at 25 °C.

Surface tension:

Based on the prediction done by ACD labs, the surface tension for chemical Cinnamyl formate was predicted to be 39.9 ± 3.0 dyne/cm

Flash point:

The flash point of Cinnamyl formate was determined to be 100 °C.

Autoflammability:

Cinnamyl formate did not catch fire on being exposed to air at room temperature of 27°C pressure of 966 hPa. This indicates that Cinnamyl formate is not auto-flammable.

Flammability:

Cinnamyl formate 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 Cinnamyl formate is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus Cinnamyl formate was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.

Explosiveness:

The study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with explosive properties.

Oxidising properties:

The study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with oxidizing properties and hence the classification procedure does not need to be applied.
