Description of key information

Soluble in water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:
2 100 mg/L
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

The water solubility of methyl benzoate is 2100 mg/L at 20 °C according to handbook data. This value corresponds well with the measured water solubility of 1212 mg/L determined in repeated experiments. Since the second value was obtained by measuring the dissolved organic carbon and not the substance, the handbook data is considered more reliable.
