Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Atm. press.:
1 013.3 hPa

The DSC-measurement in a closed glass crucible showed an exothermal decomposition in the temperature range of 230 - 365 °C with an energy of 986 J/g. Two DSC-runs in aluminium crucibles with a hole showed a broad endothermic effect in the temperature range of -115 to -75 °C (-140 to -50 °C) wit an onset temperature of -109 °C. The test item melts below - 50 °C.

The melting temperature of Acrolein cyanhydrin acetate (ACA) was determined to be below - 50 °C.
