Autoignition Temperature: 275°C

The autoignition temperature was found to be 275 °C.
Executive summary:

Dodecan-1 -ol was determined according ASTM E 659. The self ignition temperature was determined to be 275 °C at atmospheric pressure.

Description of key information

The auto-ignition temperature of dodecan-1-ol is 275°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
275 °C

Additional information

An auto-ignition temperature value of 275°C at 1013 hPa was obtained for the substance using a relevant test method. The result is considered to be reliable.

Discussion of trends in the Category of C6-24 linear and essentially-linear aliphatic alcohols:

As carbon number increases, auto-ignition temperature generally decreases. Molecular weight is higher and intermolecular forces in the substance are all higher.
