Description of key information

Melting point of 2,5 -xylenol is in range of 75 - 77 °C.

As key value was 74.8 °C as the lowest value - worst case value (CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physiks) chosen.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
74.8 °C

Additional information

The melting points, shown in the two study records are quite similar:

CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics: 74.8 °C

Brandes, 2013: 75 - 77 °C
