Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Description of key information

The boiling point of MITC (methyl isothiocyanate) is 119°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
119 °C

Additional information

A bibliographic study was made using different sources:

- in the Merck Index, the boiling point of MITC is about 119°C

- in 8 publications referenced in ACS, we found about 117-119°C.

- and according to Degussa (1981), boiling point of MITC (methyl isothiocyanate) is about 119°C.

Finally a study was made by Hundington on behalf of MLPC using a GLP method (OECD 103) with the Swiloboff method, and they found a boiling point of MITC equals to 119°C at 1013 hPa.
