Description of key information

Appearance:

On the basis of physical observations, it is concluded that chemical phenethyl salicylate physically appear to be a white crystalline solid having balsamic, floral odor.

Melting point:

Melting Point of phenethyl salicylate is determined to be 44 Deg C.

Boiling Point:

Temperature at which phenethyl salicylate changes its phase from liquid to gas is 345.09 Deg C.

Density:

Density of phenethyl salicylate is determined to be 1.1515 g/cm3 at temperature 25 Deg C.

Particle size distribution:

The particle size distribution of Phenethyl Salicylate was determined by granulometric analysis with rotap sieve shaker. The particle size distribution was determined to be in the range of 150 micron to 53 micron.

Vapour pressure:

Vapour pressure of phenethyl salicylate is concluded to be less than 0.1333 Pa at temperature 20 deg C.

Partition coefficient:

Based on the available data from peer reviewed journals and modeling databases,the partition coefficient (log Pow) value of the substance 2 -phenylethyl 2 -hydroxybenzoate was estimated to be 4.8. Based on the estimated value, chemical 2 -phenylethyl 2 -hydroxybenzoate can be considered to be hydrophobic in nature.

Water solubility:

Water solubility of Phenethyl Salicylate is determine to be 7.856 mg/L at 20 Deg C.

Surface tension:

Based on the data from ACD labs, surface tension for Phenethyl Salicylate was predicted to be 0.0497 N/m.

Flash point:

Flash point of phenethyl salicylate is concluded to be greater than 93.33 Deg C.

Auto flammability:

Phenethyl Salicylate did not catch fire on being exposed to air at room temperature of 27 °C pressure of 966 hPa. This indicates that Phenethyl Salicylate is not auto-flammable.

Flammability:

Phenethyl Salicylate does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that Phenethyl Salicylate is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus Phenethyl Salicylate was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.

Explosiveness:

the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with explosive properties

Oxidizing properties:

the study does not need to be conducted because the organic substance contains oxygen or halogen atoms which are chemically bonded only to carbon or hydrogen and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
