A relative density value of 0.8136 (D20/4) is reported in a handbook of reliable data which has been subject to peer-review and in which the original data sources are traceable. The result is considered to be reliable.

Description of key information

The density of hexan-1-ol is 0.8229 g/cm³ at 15.6°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
0.823

Additional information

The density of 0.8229 g/cm³ at 15.6°C was determined in a reliable study in accordance with ASTM D4052.

It is supported by a relative density value of 0.81 at 20°C, taken from a reliable handbook, and various consistent results from other reference sources.

Discussion of trends in the Category of C6-24 linear and essentially-linear aliphatic alcohols:

The relative density values are similar across the category. Values are consistently within the range 0.80 - 0.90 at ambient temperature.
