Reference
Endpoint:
auto-flammability
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
comparable to guideline study
Justification for type of information:
Experimental test result performed using standard test guidelines
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
other: Lowest temperature determined at which substance vaporizes to form an ignitable mixture in air
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Lowest temperature determined at which substance vaporizes to form an ignitable mixture in air
GLP compliance:
not specified
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): Methyl nicotinate
- Molecular formula: C7 H7 N O2
- Molecular weight: 137.137 g/mol
- Smiles notation: c1(C(OC)=O)cccnc1
- InChI: 1S/C7H7NO2/c1-10-7(9)6-3-2-4-8-5-6/h2-5H,1H3
- Substance type: Organic
- Physical state: Solid
Remarks on result:
other: Methyl nicotinate ignites only when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950°C is brought in contact with it.Thus it can be concluded that substance is flammable only at high temperature of about 950°C.
Conclusions:
Methyl nicotinate did not catch fire on being exposed to air at room temperature of 27°Cpressure of 966 hPa. This indicates that Methyl nicotinate is not auto-flammable.
Executive summary:

Methyl nicotinate did not catch fire on being exposed to air at room temperature of 27°Cpressure of 966 hPa. This indicates that Methyl nicotinate is not auto-flammable.
