Description of key information

Based on the available data on physical and chemical properties, Cinnamon leaf oil is not classified as hazardous according to either Directive 67/548/EEC or Regulation 1272/2008/EC.

The substance is a reddish-brown to dark-brown liquid with a characteristic odour reminiscent of eugenol.

The melting point is < -20 degrees Celsius. The boiling point is 245.7 degrees Celsius at an atmospheric pressure of 99.1 kPa.

The density was determined to be 1.0457 g/cm3 at 20 degrees C according to OECD 109.

The initial vapour pressure determined by the constituent approach was 10.51 Pa at 25 degrees Celsius.

The calculated log Kow for the constituents ranged from 1.82 -6.3, with 21.6% of the constituents with a log Kow >3.

The calculated water solubility for the constituents ranged from 0.54 - 3374 mg/l.

The surface tension was determined to be 49.4 mN/m at 20.1 ºC according to OECD 115.

The flashpoint was determined to be 90.3 degrees C according to ASTM D 6450.

The self-ignition temperature was determined to be 380 degrees C according to DIN51794 -C98835.

A statement on the use of the protocol for Registration of Natural Complex Substance (NCS) under REACH has been attached to the dossier.
