Description of key information

Flammable (Flam. Liq. 3, H226)

Key value for chemical safety assessment


Additional information

For the classification of flammable liquids data on flash point and initial boiling point are needed.

Tert-butyl bromoacetate has a flash point of 37 °C and a boiling point is estimated to be 175 °C.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008), 2.6 section, flammable liquid means a liquid having a flash point of not more than 60 °C.

Substances with a flash point equal/higher than 23 °C and equal/lower than 60 °C are classified in category 3.

In the case of tert-butyl bromoacetate the flash point is 37 °c, thus a classification as Flam. Liq. 3 (H226) is proposed, according to the CLP Regulatin (EC 1272/2008).
