Executive summary:

BUA report 54, 1990

The ignition temperature of chlorobenzene is 590 °C.

Description of key information

According to literature (BUA report 54, 1990), the ignition temperature of chlorobenzene is 590°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
590 °C

Additional information

Several literature sources were available and provide AIT values between 590 and 638°C, for the substance. The BUA report, considered as a reliable source and providing the lowest, more represented value, was chosen as key.
