Any other information on results incl. tables

The above value was obtained from the HSDB on TOXnet where reference is made to Sax, N.I. and R.J. Lewis, Sr. (eds.). Hawley's Condensed Chemical Dictionary. 11th ed. New York: Van Nostrand Reinhold Co., 1987., p. 485, as primary source. The primary source however was not checked as the data from TOXnet was peer-reviewed and assumed to be reliable.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

The flashpoint under the study conditions was reported to be 143 °C.
