Hexyl acetate is a clear colourless liquid with a melting point of -80°C
and a boiling point of 171°C.
The relative density of hexyl acetate at 20°C is 0.875.
The vapour pressure of hexyl acetate is 0.144 kPa.
The partition coefficient n-octanol/water of hexyl acetate was reported
as log Pow = 3.3 (at 30°C).
The water solubility of hexyl acetate is 430 mg/L at 19.7 °C (moderately
The surface tension of n-hexyl acetate is 26 mN/m.
A flashpoint of 58°C was obtained for hexyl acetate.
The autoignition temperature of n-Hexyl Acetate has been determined to
Hexyl acetate is a liquid with a flash point of 58°C.
Therefore, the test material is classified as flammable Cat 3 according
to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 and flammable (R10) according to
The substance does not contain any chemical groups associated with
explosive properties. Explosive properties are associated with the
presence of certain chemical groups in a molecule which can react to
produce very rapid increases in temperature or pressure. When there are
no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the
molecule then a substance or mixture shall not be classified as
It is therefore concluded that hexyl acetate is unlikely to be an
Viscosity of n-hexyl acetate is 1.075 mPa s at 25°C and 1.17 m Pa s at
The following endpoints were waived: granulometry, stability in organic
solvents and dissociation constant.
