Description of key information

In accordance with REACH Annex XI this study is scientifically unjustified. The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of  methyl i butylketone does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties and handling of the substance indicates that this is the case. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment
