Description of key information

Published chemistry handbook data (Merck, 1989) report the flash point (closed cup) of acetonitrile to be 12.8 oC at atmospheric pressure. Published chemistry handbook data (CRC, 2005) report the flash point (open cup) of acetonitrile to be 6 oC at atmospheric pressure.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
12.8 °C
