Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Description of key information

The boiling point of 85536-20-5 and xylene isomers range from 130 -150˚C at 1013 hPa. The boiling point of m-xylene is reported as 139.1˚C, for o-xylene as 144.5˚C, for p-xylene it is 138.4˚C, for ethylbenzene as 136.2˚C and for 85536-20-5 as 130 -150˚C. The mean boiling point is 140˚C and this value will be used for the risk assessment.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Data on 85536 -20 -5 was provided by Rutgers (2009). Data on the xylene isomers and ethylbenzene was taken from the CRC Handbook (Lide, 2008) is a peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use.
