Endpoint:
flash point
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
data from handbook or collection of data
Remarks:
No detailed methodology was provided for this endpoint, but it was taken from a reliable source (Merck Index), and is thus suitable for submission and use in the chemical safety assessment.
Qualifier:
no guideline available
Principles of method if other than guideline:
No detailed methodology (including guidline(s) followed) was provided in the source literature.
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
closed cup
Key result
Flash point:
-12 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 kPa
Interpretation of results:
Category 2 (highly flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The flash point of allylamine is -12 °C.

Description of key information

Two key studies were used to determine the flash point of allylamine:

Flash Point = -12 °C (closed cup method), The Merck Index, Fourteenth Edition. Published by Merck Research Laboratories, Division of Merck & Co., Inc. Whitehouse Station, NJ, USA (2006)

Flash Point = -20 °C (closed cup method), NFPA Fire Protection Guide to Hazardous Materials (13th Ed.), Quincy, MA: National Fire Protection Association (2002) pg 49-14-15.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
-20 °C

Additional information

In accordance with the precautionary principle, the lowest available value is used to derive the flash point for allylamine.
