Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The boiling range is 28 to 70°C for n-pentane, based on ASTM D1078 methodology. This range has been agreed by the consortium to represent the substance. This is supported by a value of 36.06°C (at 101.3 kPa) 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.
