Description of key information

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI testing does not appear scientifically necessary. The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of thioacetic acid does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties. The flashpoint is already reported and based on the  Boiling point around 87°C indicating that thioacetic acid is a flammable liquid cat 2 H225 Highly flammable liquid and vapour.
