Description of key information

Available information, used in a weight-of-evidence approach, indicates a boiling point of 61°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
61.23 °C

Additional information

The experimentally determined boiling point of chloroform was 61.23 °C as measured in equilibrium still (Moelwyn-Hughes and Missen 1957). This value corresponds to the values for the boiling point given in different handbooks on physicochemical properties of organic chemicals (61-62°C in The Merck Index 1976, 62°C in Verschueren 2009). The available data thus give evidence that the boiling point of chloroform at environmental pressure is approximately 61 °C.
