358 °C
Conclusions:

Executive summary:

The objective of the study was to evaluate the relative self-ignition temperature of Yellow 22.

A certain volume of the test item under the assay was placed into an oven at ambient temperature; the temperature/time curve was recorded while the temperature of the oven was increased up to 400 °C, at a rate of approximately 0.5 °C/min. For the purpose of this test, the temperature of the oven at which the sample temperature reachesby self-heating is called the self-ignition temperature. Three replicate tests were performed. The relative self-ignition temperature ofYellow 22was determined to be 358 °C.
