Description of key information

2-phenylpropan-2-ol is an transported isolated intermediate, so no testing has to be done.  
 The literature is mostly on the pure substance, so the data for melting point, boiling point, density and vapour pressure are not applicable on the commercial substance with ca. 94 %  2-phenylpropan-2-ol.
  2-phenylpropan-2-ol is not classified as dangerous and hazardous according to the data in this dossier.
 Pure 2-phenylpropan-2-ol is a white to off-white powder. The commercially imported 2-phenylpropan-2-ol (ca. 94 % purity) is a colourless to light yellow organic liquid with a faint odour. So: The substance is not an aerosol nor a gas.
 The 2-phenylpropan-2-ol commercially imported (ca. 94 % purity) is a liquid, so the melting point is below 20°C. The melting point of pure 2-phenylpropan-2-ol is 30 -36°C.  The data is reliable for the pure substance only, which is a solid. The registered substance is a liquid due to its impurities.
 The boiling point of pure 2-phenylpropan-2-ol is 192.63°C at 760 mm Hg.
 The relative density of pure 2-phenylpropan-2-ol is 0.9824 at 20°C.
 The vapour pressure of pure 2-phenylpropan-2-ol is 23 Pa at 20°C.
2-phenylpropan-2-ol is non-flammable, not self-reactive, not self-heating, nonexplosive and is nonoxidising.
