Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Administrative data

flammable solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Justification for type of information:
The flash point of Citronella oil (Cymbopogon Nardus) is 59.3ºC at ambient pressures.Therefore the substance is classified as a flammable liquid Category 3 according to CLP.

In accordance with section 2 of REACh Annex XI, flammability studies relevant for classification criteria do not apply to liquids. Please refer to flash point under 4.11. The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid. In accordance with Section 1 of REACH Annex XI testing does not appear scientifically necessary. The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flash point in combination with their boiling point. The boiling range of the test substance was determined to be 160 - 247ºC at ambient pressures.The flash point of the test substance was measured according to the guidelines ASTM D3278, ISO 3679 and ISO 3680. Determination was performed in triplicate, and the mean value of 59.3°C was retained. According to Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008 criteria, the measured flash point lies between the threshold values of 23 and 60°C, therefore the substance is classified as FLAMMABLE LIQUID category 3 (H226).
