Description of key information

The reported vapour pressure of toluene is 0.448 PSI (3088.9Pa) at 70°F (21.1°C) and 0.599 PSI (4130.0Pa) at 80°F (26.6°C).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Vapour pressure:

21.1 °C

Additional information

The handbook of vapour pressure and heats of vaporization of hydrocarbons and related compounds (Zwolinski and Wilhoit, 1971) is a peer reviewed handbook and is considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint. In addition, this vapour pressure is similar to the vapour pressure reported in the EU RAR.

The supporting study (CRC, 2008) is also a peer reviewed handbook and supports the value reported in the key study, giving a vapour pressure of 1 kPa at 1.5°C and 10 kPa at 45.2°C.
