Auto-ignition temperature (liquids / gases)
Key result
Auto-ignition temperature:
313 °C
Atm. press.:
1 030 Bar

Any other information on results incl. tables

Initially 250 microl of the test article was used starting at a temperature at 326°C.

The temperature was first decreased at 300°C shere an hot flame was not noted, then was increased until 315°C when a flame was noted.

The test was then repeated with reduced quantity of 200, 150, 100, 70 and 50 microl, but the minimum temperature of auto-ignition was confirm to be the one observed with 250 microl with an ignition delay time of 55 seconds.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
It can be concluded that the auto-ignition temperature is 313°C.
