Description of key information

The self-ignition temperature of mesitylene (1, 3, 5-trimethylbenzene) was measured to be 559°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
832 K

Additional information

The CRC Handbook is a peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint. The supporting study (ICSC 2002) is also a peer reviewed handbook and reports an auto-flammability temperature of 550°C.
