Description of key information

A weight of evidence approach identified the density of 2,6-xylenol as 1.020 g/mL at 25 °C and the relative density of 2,6-xylenol as 1.02.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
1.02

Additional information

This endpoint is addressed on a weight of evidence basis. Two pieces of data are provided.

 

The density value is taken from the second edition of the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology, which identifies the density as 1.020 g/mL at 25 °C. As this is data from a peer reviewed source, it was awarded a reliability score of 2 in accordance with the criteria for assessing data quality as set forth by Klimisch et al. (1997).

 

The relative density value is taken from the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry/Ministry of Environment’s Manual for PRTR Release Estimation Methods (3rd Edition). The relative density was determined to be 1.02 to 1.03 at 15 °C. As this is data from a peer reviewed source, it was awarded a reliability score of 2.
