Since vapour pressure increases with temperature it is important to only consider results from the same temperature, so 20 degrees C is the chosen temperature, since the majority of results are available from this temperature. Standardising the results to units of kPa the available data indicates a vapour pressure of 0.5, 0.5 and 0.1.

Due to consistency between two independent values and the fact that one of the sources was peer reviewed, it is considered that 0.5 kPa at 20 degrees C can be taken to be the vapour pressure of 2-chloropropionic acid.
