Key result
Flash point:
140.5 °C
Atm. press.:
101 325 Pa

The results obtained in the three runs were 142.5, 139.5 and 141.5 °C. The deviation between the first and second determination was too high (>2 K). The value of the third determination verified the value of the second determination; therefore, for the calculation of the mean value, the results of the second and third determination were taken.
