Description of key information

The melting point of 2-Chloropropionic acid is -13 degrees C..

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
-13 °C

Additional information

Three sources of information on the melting point/freezing point of 2-Chloropropionic acid are presented.

A guideline key study is available, where the melting point/freezing point is found to be -13 to -15 degrees C.

Two additional supporting studies are available. Both of these sources report -12 degrees C. The results are all in good agreement with each other and the key study.

The mean value is -13 degrees C, which is in agreement with the key study. This is therefore taken to be the melting point/freezing point of 2-chloropropionic acid.
