Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
18th November 2010 to 13th January 2011
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: A GLP compliant study conducted in compliance with agreed protocols, with no or minor deviations from standard test guidelines and/or minor methodological deficiencies, which do not affect the quality of the relevant results.
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
2002
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Remarks:

Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): 1-phenylethyl acetate
- Physical state: colourless to pale yellow liquid
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): Gardenol
- Lot/batch No.: VE00123242
- Expiration date of the lot/batch: 14th January 2013
Flash point:
92.5 °C
Atm. press.:
101 325 Pa

The results of the main tests are:

First determination: Flash point, corrected for atmospheric pressure: 92.5 ºC

Second determination: Flash point, corrected for atmospheric pressure: 92.5 ºC

The exact results of the two tests were averaged and rounded off to the nearest 0.5 ºC to obtain the final flash point value.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Under the conditions of the test, the flash point of the test substance was determined to be 92.5 ºC at 101.325 kPa.
Executive summary:

In a GLP compliant flash point study conducted in line with standardised guidelines EU Method A.9 and ISO 2719, the flash point of the substance was determined using the Pensky-Martens closed cup method. The flash point of the substance was determined to be 92.5ºC at 101.325 kPa.

Description of key information

The flash point of 1-phenylethyl acetate was determined to be 92.5 ºC according to a study performed in line with EU Method A.9 and ISO 2719:2002. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
92.5 °C

Additional information

The key study (Givaudan, 2011f) was conducted in line with GLP and standardised guidelines with a sufficient level of detail to assess the quality of the study. The study was performed to a good standard and was assigned a reliability score of 1 in accordance with Klimisch (1997).
