Executive summary:

The flash point determination of 1,4-Dichloro-2-nitrobenzene (CAS No. 89-61-2) was done following closed cup method using Pensky-Martens flash point apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and mean flash point was determine to be 114°C at 971.3hPa.

Description of key information

The flash point determination of 1,4-Dichloro-2-nitrobenzene (CAS No. 89-61-2) was done following closed cup method using Pensky-Martens flash point apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and mean flash point was determined to be 114°C at 971.3hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The flash point determination of 1,4-Dichloro-2-nitrobenzene (CAS No. 89-61-2) was done following closed cup method using Pensky-Martens flash point apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and mean flash point was determined to be 114°C at 971.3hPa.

The flash point of chemical 2,5-Dichloronitrobenzene is determine to be 135 deg C.

Based on the both studies, the flash point of test chemical was ranges from 114-135°C.
