The self-ignition tempearture of 2-Ethylhexyl 4-methoxycinnamate at 977 mbar is 392 °C.
Executive summary:

The self-ignition temperature of 2-Ethylhexyl 4-methoxycinnamate was determined according to DIN guideline 51'794. The self-ignition temperature was found to be is 392 °C at 977 mbar.

Description of key information

Self-ignition temperature: 392 °C at 977 mBar

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
392 °C

Additional information

The self-ignition temperature of Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate was reported to be 392 °C at 977 mBar in the key study. A supporting study reported a self-ignition temperature of 365 °C at 1000 - 1004 mBar. Both studies were performed according to international guidelines, but not under GLP. Since the study determining a flash point of 392 °C is of a more recent date, it was selected as key study.
