Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Executive summary:

The Merck Index, 2006

The flash point of chlorobenzene is 28 °C.

Description of key information

According to literature (The Merck Index, 2006) chlorobenzene flash point is 28°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
28 °C

Additional information

Several literature sources were available and provide consistent flash point values, of 27 or 28°C, for the substance. The Merck Index, considered as a reliable source and providing the more represented value (the worst-case was not retained,as not considered critical, no impact on classification), was chosen as key.
