Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
95.5 °C

Additional information

Several data are available for this endpoint. Even if from secondary source, most of these data are from reference books or database (e.g. Merck Index, GESTIS database, EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs…) and all the flash point values reported are in the narrow range of 95.5°C to 101°C. Therefore, a weight of evidence approach is considered as relevant to assess the flash point of the substance. As a worst case, the lowest value, i.e. 95.5°C, is selected as the key value for the assessment of the substance.
