Description of key information

The self-ignition temperature of Alcohols, C7-9-linear and branched is  expected to be =270°C on the basis of the properties of its constituent alcohols.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The expert judgement that the value would be expected to exceed 270°C is based upon read across from recent reliable measurements for commercial samples of analogous mono-constituent substances (hexan-1-ol, octan-1-ol and nonan-1-ol).

In some cases the CAS and chemical identity stated refer to SDA nomenclature for this substance. in REACH substance identification it is necessary to be more specific as to the chain lengths present. Full details may be

found in the CSR.
