The mean flash point of 3'-nitroacetophenone(CAS No. 121-89-1) is 191.6°C at 976.5hPa.
Executive summary:

The flash point determination of 3'-nitroacetophenone (CAS No. 121-89-1)was done following closed cup method using Pensky-Martens flash point apparatus. The test was conducted in replicates and mean flash point was determined to be 191.6°C at 976.5hPa.

Based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point >than 60 degree C hence the

3'-nitroacetophenone (CAS No. 121-89-1) was considered to be non-flammable.
