Description of key information

The substances in the lithium salts of monocarboxylic acids C14 -C22 category have relative self-ignition temperatures above their melting points and therefore do not meet the criteria for classification as self-heating substances.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The relative self-ignition temperatures of substances in the lithium salts of monocarboxylic acids C14-C22 category have been determined in GLP-compliant studies following EC guideline A16. The data on lithium myristate, lithium 12 -hydroxystearate and lithium behenate are taken from proprietary study reports (Harlan 2013). Studies are currently ongoing for lithium stearate, fatty acids C16 -18 lithium salts, fatty acids C16 -22 lithium salts, fatty acids C16 -18 (even numbered) saturated and C16 -20 (even numbered) unsaturated lithium salts, and tallow lithium salt (Covance 2020).
