other: non-flammable
Conclusions:
The mean flash point of Methyl nicotinate(CAS No. 93-60-7) is 90.3°C at 970.6hPa.
Executive summary:

The flash point determination of Methyl nicotinate (CAS No. 93-60-7)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 90.3°C at 970.6hPa. Based on criteria mentioned in CLP regulation the chemical has flash point >than 60 degree C hence the substance was considered to be non-flammable.
