Key result
Auto-ignition temperature:
> 334 - < 342 °C
Atm. press.:
> 100.1 - < 100.4 kPa

Any other information on results incl. tables

The auto-ignition temperature of the test substance was 338 ± 4°C with an injection volume of 1000 µL. The testing was carried out over a total period of 3 days. The testing at 1000 µL was carried out over day 2 and day 3. The measured atmospheric pressure was 100.4 kPa on the first day, 100.2 kPa on the second day and 100.1 kPa on the third day. The full results are shown in Table 5 (attached).

Applicant's summary and conclusion

The auto-ignition temperature of the test substance was found to be 338 ± 4 °C at 100.1 kPa, under the conditions of the test.
Executive summary:

In this guideline (EU A.15) study, [conducted with GLP certification], The auto-ignition temperature of the test substance was found to be 338 ±4 °C at 100.1 kPa.
