EC number: 807-130-4
CAS number: 53716-82-8
(Cyrene™) is a liquid at ambient temperature and pressure, with a
measured freezing point of <-20°C and a measured boiling point of 227°C
at 100.7 kPa. It has a measured relative density of 1.25 at 20°C and
measured vapour pressure value of 28 Pa at 25°C. Cyrene™ has a measured
surface tension value of 72.5 mN/m at 22°C for a nominal concentration
of 1 g/L and viscosity values of 13.81 mPa.s at 20°C and 6.95 mPa.s at
In the presence of water, Cyrene™
forms a reversible dynamic equilibrium with the geminal diol or Gem Diol
[C(OH)2]. This is discussed further in the attached document in Section
13. At concentrations relevant for studies of aqueous physicochemical
properties, the Gem Diol form predominates. Therefore, the measured
water-based values are considered relevant for both form.
Cyrene™/Gem Diol has a water
solubility of 52.6 to 90 w/w% at 20°C and pH 3.09 to 3.15 (determined by
visual inspection), and a measured log Kow value of -1.52 at
22°C and pH 5.18 to 5.24.
Cyrene™ is not classified for
flammability in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 on the
basis of a measured flash point of 108°C at 101.9 kPa and measured
boiling point of 227°C at 100.7 kPa. It has a measured auto-ignition
temperature of 296°C at 100.3 to 101.3 kPa and is not explosive and not
oxidising on the basis of structural examination. Cyrene™ is determined to
be non-hazardous as no gases were evolved in any of the four steps under
the conditions of an EU Test Method A.12.
