Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
107 °C

Additional information

Seven sources of information on the flash point of 2-Chloropropionic acid are presented. The results are all in good agreement with each other and are all above the value that would trigger classification.

However, these are secondary sources and many seem to refer back to the same original information. The following values are reported:

 Source  Value, oC  IUCLID Reference
 CRC Handbook of Chemisty and Physics, 85th Edition  107  001
 Sigma Aldrich Library of chemical safety data, 2nd Edition  101  002
 Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials, NI Sax and RJ Lewis  107  003
 Inchem.org  106  004
 IUCLID 4 Dataset - Nufarm UK Limited 107   005
IUCLID 4 Dataset - BASF AG    107  005
 Sigma Aldrich Safety Data Sheet  101  006

Taking into account the more reliable sources - peer reviewed and company data from the IUCLID 4 dataset, it is concluded that the flash point is 107 degrees C.
