REPORTING FORMAT FOR THE CATEGORY APPROACH
see attached category document
PM_Lower Alkyl (C1-C8) Methacrylates
This is a category (C1-C8 lower Alkyl Methacrylates) with clear trends in the physicochemical properties of its members, related to molecular weight, molecular size and hydrophilicity.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.15 (Auto-Ignition Temperature (Liquids and Gases))
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Auto-ignition temperature:
250 °C
Atm. press.:
>= 1 010 - <= 1 013 hPa

Preliminary test: The lowest self-ignition temperature was determined to be 258 oC.

Main test: The following table shows the results of the three principal tests. Temperatures, where self-ignition (+) was detected and where not (-). The amount of test item tested at each measurement is indicated as numbers of drops.
