Measurement:

Boiling point: 443.5 °F / 445.5 °F (repeat detemination)

Melting point average: 444.5 °F

Conclusions:
Boiling point of Decan-1-ol: 444.5 °F (= 229 °C) at atmospheric pressure, no decomposition was reported.
Executive summary:

Decan-1 -ol was determined according ASTM D1120. The boiling point was determined to be 444.5 °F (= 229 °C) at atmospheric pressure.

Description of key information

The boiling point of decan-1-ol is 229°C. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The boiling point of 229°C was determined in a reliable study.

It is supported by a value of 231.6°C taken from a second reliable study using a less highly purified sample, a value of 231°C taken from a reliable handbook, and a consistent result from another reference source.

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

As chain length increases, boiling point increases. This is because molecular weight is higher and intermolecular forces in the substance are all higher. There is some evidence for decomposition before boiling for the longest chain alcohols in this group.
