Endpoint:
auto-flammability
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2006-12-05 - 2006-12-06
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.15 (Auto-Ignition Temperature (Liquids and Gases))
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: DIN 51947
Deviations:
no
Principles of method if other than guideline:
None
GLP compliance:
no
Auto-ignition temperature:
370 °C
Remarks on result:
other: no details on pressure available

The following three lowest values have been determined:

374.5 °C (first main test)

383 °C (second main test)

380 °C (third main test)

These values are in a range of 20 °C as requested for temperatures >300 °C. The self-ignition temperature is the lowest of the three values above, rounded down to 370°C.

Conclusions:
Self-ignition temperature = 370 °C
Executive summary:

The self-ignition temperature of benzalacetone has been determined to be 370°C (EU method A.15, no GLP, Laus GmbH, 2006).
