Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

The substance is described by the registrant to be a clear to off yellow/brown molten mass at room temperature.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:

Additional information

Two key studies are included to address this endpoint; both were awarded a reliability score of 1 in accordance with the criteria set forth by Klimisch et al. (1997).

In the first study, the physical state and appearance of the registered material was assessed as part of the study carried out to assess its spectral characteristics. The laboratory identified 2,6-Xylenol as brown coloured crystals.

The other data provided to address this endpoint is a statement by the registrant as to the physical state and appearance of the substance. The substance is produced as a liquid (temperature above the melting point) and changes into a molten mass at room temperature. Normally it is clear, but can discolour to off yellow/brown.
