Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
1 (reliable without restriction)
according to guideline
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Ministry of Labor, Health and Social Affairs of North Rhine-Westphalia, Düsseldorf, Germany
Relative self-ignition temperature:
170 °C
Remarks on result:
other: does undergo spontaneous combustion

The test substance showed an endothermic reaction between 51 °C and 142 °C. It was followed by a strong exothermic reaction. The maximum reaction temperature was 471 °C. The relative spontaneous ignition temperature is 170 °C.

Executive summary:

In a test according to EU Method A.16 the relative ignition temperature of sodium p-chloro-m-cresolate was determined to be 170 °C.
