EC number: 265-191-7
CAS number: 64742-88-7
A complex combination of hydrocarbons obtained from the distillation of crude oil or natural gasoline. It consists predominantly of saturated hydrocarbons having carbon numbers predominantly in the range of C9 through C12 and boiling in the range of approximately 140°C to 220°C (284°F to 428°F).
Key study data are available for most of the
required physicochemical endpoints for kerosine. Kerosines are
low-viscosity hydrocarbon liquids (CONCAWE 2009). The boiling point is
from 146 to 299°C and the density is from 0.77 to 0.85 g/cm3at
15°C (CONCAWE 2010a). The vapour pressure for kerosines ranges from <1
to 3.7 kPa at 37.8°C. The flash point is 29 - 70°C and the
auto-flammability temperature is 220 - 250°C (CONCAWE 2010a). The
viscosity of kerosine is 1 to 2.4 cSt at 40°C and 2.8 to 4.3 cSt at
-20°C (CONCAWE 2010a). Melting/freezing point, water solubility,
partition coefficient, surface tension, explosiveness, flammability,
oxidizing properties, dissociation constant, and stability in organic
solvents endpoints were determined to be eligible for data waiving. A
granulometry study was technically not feasible.
Physico-chemical data for kerosine were
derived from the Kerosines/Jet Fuels Product Dossier (CONCAWE 1994,
reliable with restrictions), The Compilation of Selected
Physico-Chemical Properties of Petroleum Substances (CONCAWE 2010a,
reliable with restrictions); and the Category Justification Document
