Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The flash point is <-20°C for n-pentane based on DIN 51755 methodology. This value has been agreed by the consortium to represent the substance. This is supported by a value of -40°C from the CRC Handbook (Lide 2008). There is no information available on the methods used to determine the value for this endpoint. However, the CRC Handbook is considered to be a reliable, peer-reviewed handbook and suitable for use as a study for this endpoint.
