Additional information

Based on the key study from study report,the flash point determination of test substance 2,3-dimethylphenol (526-75-0) was done as per the test guideline OECD 103. The method is closed cup method using Pensky Martin’s Flash Point Apparatus. The flashpoint of the test substance was found to be 98.6°C at 966.6hPa.

From the available authoritative database, the flash point value of 2,3-Dimethylphenol was determined to be 95°C considered as key study which was supported by pub chem database having flash point range from 61 -95 degree C.
