Description of key information

Terephthalic acid is a solid that sublimes at 402-404 degrees C at atmospheric pressure, without evidence of self-heating. In the absence of self-heating at 400 degrees C an experimental determination of auto-flammability (the lowest temperature at which terephthalic acid will spontaneously ignite in the absence of an external ignition source) is not required.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
