Description of key information

The surface tension of the xylene isomers ranges from 28.01 to 29.76 mN/m at 25°C. The surface tension of m-xylene is 28.47 mN/m at 25°C, of o-xylene at 25˚C is 29.76 mN/m and of p-xylene is 28.01  mN/m at 25°C. The mean surface tension is 28.75 mN/m at 25°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Surface tension:
28.75

Additional information

The CRC Handbook (Lide, 2008) is a peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint.
