auto-ignition temperature (liquids)
Type of information:
read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
estimated by calculation
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Justification for type of information:
A discussion and report on the read across strategy is given as an attachment in IUCLID Section 13.
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
read-across: supporting information
according to guideline
other: Literature data
Key result
Auto-ignition temperature:
> 200 °C
Atm. press.:
1 atm
Remarks on result:
The self-ignition temperature is min. 200°C.
Executive summary:

The self-ignition temperature of the lower boiling component, has been reported from Yaws' Handbook as minimum 200°C.

Description of key information

There is no data available for Hydrocarbons, C15-C16, n-alkanes, <2% aromatics. However, data is available for a structural analogue, Pentadecane and presented in the dossier. This data is read across to Hydrocarbons, C15-C16, n-alkanes, <2% aromatics based on analogue read across and a discussion and report on the read across strategy is provided as an attachment in IUCLID Section 13.

The self-ignition temperature for Pentadecane is above 200°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
