Description of key information

The pour point of Alcohols, C12-15, branched and linear is 6.1°C at 1013 hPa. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The pour point of 6.1°C at 1013 hPa was determined for Alcohols, C12-15, branched and linear in accordance with ASTM 97-08. The result is considered to be reliable.

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

As chain length increases, melting point increases. This is because molecular weight is higher and intermolecular forces in the substance are all higher
