Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Applicant's summary and conclusion

The surface tension of benzoyl chloride at 20 °C is 39.17 mN/m
Executive summary:

This review article reports the surface tension of benzoyl chloride using a collection of data which were chosen using specific selection criteria such as amount of data available, methodology, etc. as well as an estimation of the reliablity. Surface tension values are given from 10°C till 160°C in steps of 10°C and range from 40.26 mN/m (10°C) till 24.00 mN/m (160°C). The surface tesnion of the test substance at 20 °C is 39.17mN/m.

Since the review article is based on carefully chosen data, we consider it a Klimisch 2g (reliable with restriction: collection of data)
