Endpoint:
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: It is how easily substance can burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion by brief contact with an ignition source.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
It is how easily substance can burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion by brief contact with an ignition source
GLP compliance:
not specified
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material: Sodium phenylacetate
- IUPAC name: Sodium 2-phenylacetate
- Molecular formula: C8H7NaO2
- Molecular weight: 158.1313 g/mole
- Smiles : c1(ccccc1)CC(=O)[O-].[Na+]
- Inchl: 1S/C8H8O2.Na/c9-8(10)6-7-4-2-1-3-5-7;/h1-5H,6H2,(H,9,10);/q;+1/p-1

Key result
Test procedure:
other: not specified
Remarks on result:
other: Sodium phenylacetate not ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C was brought in contact with it.
Interpretation of results:
other: non flammable
Conclusions:
Sodium phenylacetate does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that Sodium phenylacetate is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus Sodium phenylacetate was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
Executive summary:

Sodium phenylacetate does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that Sodium phenylacetate is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus Sodium phenylacetate was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
