comparable to guideline study
Justification for type of information:
Experimental test result performed using standard test guidelines
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
other: It is how easily substance can burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion by brief contact with an ignition source (such as a burning match)
Principles of method if other than guideline:
It is how easily substance can burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion by brief contact with an ignition source (such as a burning match)

not specified
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material (IUPAC name): 2-Ethoxynaphthalene
- Common name: Ethyl 2-naphthyl ether
- Molecular formula: C12H12O
- Molecular weight: 172.226 g/mol
- Smiles notation: c12c(ccc(c1)OCC)cccc2
- InChl: 1S/C12H12O/c1-2-13-12-8-7-10-5-3-4-6-11(10)9-12/h3-9H,2H2,1H3

Key result
Test procedure:
other: Not specified
Remarks on result:
other: Ethyl 2-naphthyl ether ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950°C was brought in contact with it.
Interpretation of results:
other: non flammable
Conclusions:
Ethyl 2-naphthyl ether ignites only when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that Ethyl 2-naphthyl ether is flammable only at high temperature of about 950°C. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus Ethyl 2-naphthyl ether was considered non-flammable.
Executive summary:

Ethyl 2-naphthyl ether ignites only when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that Ethyl 2-naphthyl ether is flammable only at high temperature of about 950°C. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus Ethyl 2-naphthyl ether was considered non-flammable.

Description of key information
