Description of key information

The boiling point of Alcohols, C12-15, branched and linear is 278.8°C at 1013 hPa. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
278.8 °C

Additional information

The boiling point of 278.8°C was determined for Alcohols, C12-15, branched and linear with the use of a Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) in accordance with ASTM E537-07. 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,boiling point increases. This is because molecular weight is higher and intermolecular forces in the substance are all higher.There is some evidence for decomposition before boiling for the longest chain alcohols in this group
