flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
no data
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Test was performed according to international guideline (DIN 51758)
equivalent or similar to guideline
ISO 2719 (Determination of flash point - Pensky-Martens closed cup method)
Version / remarks:
2002. Remark: DIN 51758
no duplo was conducted instead a literature value in the laboratory database was used for comparison (value 204 °C)
GLP compliance:
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point apparatus:
Pensky-Martens apparatus
Key result
Flash point:
219 °C
Remarks on result:
other: Atm. press. not reported

Pressure of the measurement was not recorded in the report.

A duplo measurement was not conducted. instead a comparison with a value from the testlaboratories database was done. The database value was 204 °C. The reason given for this approach was that, according to the report, for practical purposes the difference between value of 219 °C and 204 °C has no consequence.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
The flash point of 2-Ethylhexyl 4-methoxycinnamate was determined according to DIN guideline 51758 and was found to be 219 °C.
Executive summary:

The flaspoint of 2-Ethylhexyl 4-methoxycinnamate was determined according to the DIN 51758 guideline. Ignition occurred at 219 °C, but a duplo to confirm this result was not carried out. Instead a value of 204 °C from the laboratory database was used as a duplo. As 204 °C is the lower of the two values, this value was used as the flash point.

Description of key information
