Description of key information

A flashpoint of 94 °C has been experimentally determined for L-menthol and consequently it is assumed that at ambient temperatures the solid L-menthol is not ignitable and hence does not fulfil classification criteria for flammable solids. Additionally, experience in handling and use of L-menthol  does not indicate flammable properties. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the CLP classifications, the substance is not classifiable as a flammable solid as no flammable properties are known at ambient temperatures. A flashpoint of 94 °C has been reported for L-menthol and consequently it can be assumed that at ambient temperatures the solid L-menthol is not ignitable and hence does not fulfill classification criteria for flammable solids. Experience of handling and use also does not indicate classification as a flammable solid.
