Reference
Endpoint:
auto-ignition temperature (liquids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2017
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.15 (Auto-Ignition Temperature (Liquids and Gases))
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Appearance/Physical state: Clear colorless liquid
Batch: TS160314
Purity: 101%
Expiry date: 14 March 2019
Storage conditions: Room temperature in the dark
Key result
Auto-ignition temperature:
300 °C
Atm. press.:
101 kPa
Conclusions:
The test item has been determined to have an auto-ignition temperature of 300 ± 5 °C.
Executive summary:

The determination was carried out using a procedure* designed to be compatible with Method A.15 Auto-Ignition Temperature (Liquids and Gases) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008. The test flask was heated in a flask heater. Aliquots of test item (tested as received) were injected into the flask using a syringe and the flask was observed for signs of ignition over a 300 second period. This procedure was repeated, varying the sample size, as necessary, until the lowest temperature at which ignition, if any, occurred within 300 seconds of insertion, was determined. Where clean flasks were not used, the flask was flushed with air between sample insertions. The test item has been determined to have an auto-ignition temperature of 300 ± 5 °C at Room temperature of 19 °C and atmospheric pressure of 101.4 to 102.3 kPa.
