Description of key information

From the experimental values of flammability, 5-nitrosalicylic acid ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950 degC was brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that 5-nitrosalicylic acid is flammable only at high temperature of about 950 degC. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, 5-nitrosalicylic acid was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
