Description of key information

The auto ingnition temperature is >200°C for n-pentane, based on ASTM E 659 methodology.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The autoflammability temperature is >200°C for n-pentane based on ASTM E659 methodology. This value has been agreed by the consortium to represent the substance. This is supported by a value of 260°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.
