Description of key information

The pour point of Alcohols, C7-9-linear and branched is -46°C. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The pour point of -46°C is reported in company product literature for the UVCB. The constituents and short chain structural analogues of constituents of the substance have recent reliable measured pour points in the range -45°C (hexan-1-ol)- -3°C (nonan-1-ol) and these values provide additional supporting weight of evidence.

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.
