Description of key information

> 300 °C, decomposition probable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

This property shows a correlation between molecular weight / chain length and boiling point. Measured boiling points for methyl esters of fatty acids prove this correlation. Fatty acid esters of a molecular weight > 300 amu and a β-hydrogen in the alcohol chain (≥ C3) have a boiling point > 300 °C and decompose before boiling. Under reduced pressure of 5 mmHg, the measured value 240 °C is reported in peer reviewed data collections.
