Specific details on test material used for the study:
Name: 2-tert-butyl-1,4-dimethoxybenzene
Other name: Vetimoss
CAS number: 21112-37-8
Batch/Lot number: A180118C
Appearance: Clear, pale yellow liquid
Purity: 99.78%
Expiry date: 06 June 2019
Storage: Controlled room temperature (15-25°C, below 70 RH%), under inert gas, protected from humidity
Key result
Auto-ignition temperature:
396 °C
Atm. press.:
97.9 kPa

Temperature was measured in case of each experiment at the outside and inside of the flask. The temperature distribution was steady outside the flask. The ignition delay time was determined when ignition was observed.

The test was carried out at 97.9 kPa atmospheric pressure. The measured auto-ignition temperature of the test item was 396°C.
