Key result
Remarks on result:
other: 3-(bromomethyl)benzonitrile 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:
3-(bromomethyl)benzonitrile 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 3-(bromomethyl)benzonitrile is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus 3-(bromomethyl)benzonitrile was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
Executive summary:

3-(bromomethyl)benzonitrile 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 3-(bromomethyl)benzonitrile is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus 3-(bromomethyl)benzonitrile was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
