flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
not specified
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
data from handbook or collection of data
The use of secondary sources of data is acceptable when they are based on a critical evaluation of peer-reviewed data and a consequent selection of a reliable and representative value for the property under investigation. This is a peer reviewed handbook and it is therefore accepted that this data source is reasonably reliable.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
No method specified as data was obtained from handbook.
Type of method:
other: Not specified
Key result
Flash point:
-47 °C
Atm. press.:
760 mm Hg
Remarks on result:
other: Standard Atmospheric Pressure assumed
Interpretation of results:
Category 2 (highly flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
The flash point of 2,2-dimethylbutane is reported to be -47 °C.
Executive summary:

The flash point of 2,2-dimethylbutane is reported to be -47 °C. No information on the primary source of this data or the methods used is available. However, this information is taken from a reliable peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint.

Description of key information

The flash point of 2,2 -dimethylbutane is reported to be -47°C.

Supporting data is also available for Hydrocarbons, C6, isoalkanes, <5% n-hexane and Isohexane and this data is used for read across to 2,2 -dimethylbutane.

The flash point ofHydrocarbons, C6, isoalkanes,  <5% n-hexaneis <0°C according to methodology DIN 51755. This range has been agreed by the consortium to represent the substance.
