Description of key information

Weight of evidence: results from independent sources lead to the conclusion that the melting point is 160 ºC (433 K).
At this temperature decomposition is observed.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
433 K

Additional information

Weight of evidence: results from independent sources such as peer reviewed handbooks lead to the conclusion that the melting point is 160 ºC (433 K). On heating above 160 ºC the calcium acetate decomposes to acetone and CaCO3.
