Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

> 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.
