The lower and upper explosion limits of
benzene vapour are 1.2 and 7.8%.
The flammability of liquids is determined on
basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point),
their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their
pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of benzene does not contain
groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric
properties and handling of the substance indicates that this is the
case. Benzene has a flash point of -11°C and a boiling point is 80.09°C
and therefore meets the criteria of Category 2 for flammability (flash
point <23 °C and boiling point of >35 °C) under the CLP Regulations.
