Reference
Endpoint:
flammable liquids: obsolete as covered by section 'Flash point'
Type of information:
calculation (if not (Q)SAR)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
1994
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Extrapolated
Qualifier:
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Extrapolation from published data
GLP compliance:
no
Remarks:
estimated by calculation
Interpretation of results:
other: Flammable
Remarks:
on the basis of flash point value
Conclusions:
Reported LEL and UEL are respectively 0.6 % and 7.0 % v/v.
Executive summary:

The lower explosive limit and upper explosive limit of the substance Hydrocarbons, C9 -C12, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, aromatics (2 -25%) have been extrapolated as respectively 0.6 and 7.0 % v/v.

The flash point being higher than 23°C but lower than 60°C, the substance is considered as flammable.

Considering the chemical structure and the experience in handling and use, pyrophoric properties and flammability on contact with water can be ruled out for this substance.

Description of key information

The lower explosive limit and upper explosive limit of the substance Hydrocarbons, C9-C12, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, aromatics (2-25%) have been reported by exrapolation as respectively 0.6 and 7.0 % v/v.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
flammable

Additional information

The lower explosive limit and upper explosive limit of the substance Hydrocarbons, C9 -C12, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, aromatics (2 -25%) have been extrapolated as respectively 0.6 and 7.0 % v/v.

The flash point being higher than 23°C but lower than 60°C, the substance is considered as flammable.

Considering the chemical structure and the experience in handling and use, pyrophoric properties and flammability on contact with water can be ruled out for this substance.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The flash point is > 23°C and <60°C (see section 4.11).
