Description of key information

The autoignition temperature or kindling point of a substance is the lowest temperature at which it will spontaneously ignite in a normal atmosphere without an external source of ignition, such as a flame or spark. The auto ignition temperature of 1-(6-methoxy-2-naphthyl)ethan-1-one was determined in the laboratory but it was found that this chemical do not catch fire at room temperature of 27°C and atmospheric pressure of 966 hPa. Thus it can be concluded that 1-(6-methoxy-2-naphthyl)ethan-1-one is not auto flammable.
