Description of key information

the melting point of 2-chlorobenzaldehyde is between 10 °C and 12.4 °C at 1013.25 hPa.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Melting / freezing point at 101 325 Pa:
11.6 °C

Additional information

A literature review was conducted. In a weight of evidence approach the literature values were evaluated. HSDB reports the melting point to be 12.39 °C at 1013.25 hPa. REAXYS reports the melting point to be between 10 -12 °C at 1013.25 hPa.

The GESTIS database reports the melting point to be 10°C at 1013.25 hPa and Ullmann's Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry report the melting point to be 11.6 °C at 101.3 kPa. Four independent literature sources report the melting point in the same range. Thus, a melting point of 11.6 °C at 101.3 kPa which represent the median of all values was chosen as key value.
