Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

boiling point
Type of information:
calculation (if not (Q)SAR)
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Data fron peer reviewed journal (referred to in TPP Hazard Review, US EPA, 29th August 2005)
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Extrapolated according to the Clausius-Clapeyron equation using experimentally derived parameters
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
other: Calculation
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Purified by recrystallisation from methanol
Boiling pt.:
414 °C
Atm. press.:
760 Torr
Measured experimentally
Decomp. temp.:
> 410 °C

The result for the boiling point is an extrapolation - the decomposition temperature is a measured result

The boiling point of TPP is estimated to be 414 °C at 760 Torr.
Executive summary:

The boiling point of TPP is estimated to be 414 °C at 760 Torr.

Description of key information

The boiling point at atmospheric pressure (760 torr/mmHg) is 413.5-414 °C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
687 K

Additional information

Most sources report reduced pressure boiling points of, for example, 244 -245 °C at 10 or 11 Torr. A boiling point of 413.5 °C has been reported by Perry & Green (1984) which agrees with the boiling point extrapolated using the Clausius-Clapeyron equation and the parameters measured by Dobry & Keller (1957). It has also been reported that TPP decomposes at or near its boiling point (Dobry & Keller (1957).
