Description of key information

Appearance:

Chemical 4-methoxybenzoyl chloride is observed to be appear as a colorless liquid having pungent odor.

Melting point:

Freezing point of chemical 4-methoxybenzoyl chloride is determine to be 22 Deg C.

Boiling Point:

Boiling point of chemical 4-methoxybenzoyl chloride is determine in the range in between 262 to 263 Deg C.

Density:

Density of 4-methoxybenzoyl chloride is determine to be 1.261 g/cm3 at temperarature 20 Deg C.

Particle size distribution:

The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is marketed or used in a non solid or granular form. Chemical 4-methoxybenzoyl chloride is observed to be appear as a yellowish brown liquid.

Vapour pressure:

The estimated vapour pressure of 4-Methoxybenzoyl Chloride at temperature 25 deg C was 1.8531 Pa.

Partition coefficient

Based on the available data from authoritative and modelling databases, the partition coefficient (log Pow) value of the substance Anisoyl chloride was estimated to be 1.52. On the basis of this value, chemical Anisoyl chloride can be considered to be hydrophilic in nature.

Water solubility:

The estimated water solubility of 4-Methoxybenzoyl Chloride at 25 deg C was 3091 mg/l.

Surface tension:

Surface tension of chemical 4-methoxybenzoyl chloride is determine to be 0.025 N/m at temperature 20 Deg C.

Flash point:

flash point of chemical 4-methoxybenzoyl chloride is determine to be 87 Deg C.

Auto flammability:

Auto flammability of chemical 4-methoxybenzoyl chloride is determine to be greater than 500 Deg C.

Flammability:

4-Methoxybenzoyl Chloride 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 4-Methoxybenzoyl Chloride is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus 4-Methoxybenzoyl Chloride 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.

Oxidizing properties:

The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid.
