Reference
Endpoint:
auto-flammability
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
comparable to guideline study
Justification for type of information:
Experimental test result performed using standard test guidelines
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: Lowest temperature determined at which substance vaporizes to form an ignitable mixture in air
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Lowest temperature determined at which substance vaporizes to form an ignitable mixture in air
GLP compliance:
not specified
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material: Nonylphenol ethoxylates
- Molecular formula: C17 H28 O2
- InChl: InChI=1S/C17H28O2/c1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-16-10-12-17(13-11-16)19-15-14-18/h10-13,18H,2-9,14-15H2,1H3
- Substance type: Organic
- Physical state: Liquid
Remarks on result:
other: Nonylphenol ethoxylates 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 substance is flammable only at high temperature of about 950°C.
Conclusions:
Nonylphenol ethoxylates did not catch fire on being exposed to air at room temperature of 27°Cpressure of 966 hPa. This indicates that Nonylphenol ethoxylates is not auto-flammable.
Executive summary:

Nonylphenol ethoxylates did not catch fire on being exposed to air at room temperature of 27°Cpressure of 966 hPa. This indicates that Nonylphenol ethoxylates is not auto-flammable.
