Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
data from handbook or collection of data
Justification for type of information:
Due to insufficient reporting of the experimental details, this study was rated with a Klimisch score of 4 (‘not assignable’). As none of the available studies can serve as a key study with a sufficiently detailed reporting justifying a Klimisch score of 1 or 2 for the given endpoint, several independent sources were used in a weight of evidence approach. The combined data from handbooks or collection of data provide experimental values in a similar range, supporting the reliability of the result.

Executive summary:

Dugal, M. (Kirk-Othmer), 2005


The following values are reported for the boiling point of 3-nitrotoluene: 231.9 °C at 101 kPa, 156.9 °C at 13.3 kPa, and 50.2 °C at 0.13 kPa.

Description of key information

The individual study reports (data from handbooks or collection of data) show some deficiencies with respect to the comprehensiveness of the experimental details. Therefore, a reliability of 1 or 2 and thus adequacy as key study was not assignable for any of the individual studies. Consequently, the studies were assigned a Klimisch score of 4 (according to guidance document R.4, ‘not assignable: studies or data […] which are only listed in short abstracts or secondary literature (books, reviews, etc.)). As the individual studies report values are in a similar range, collectively, these studies can be used to conclude on this endpoint and to satisfy the information requirement.


The boiling point of 3-nitrotoluene was determined in a series of experimental studies and found to be in the range of 231 - 233 °C:


Dugal, M. (Kirk-Othmer), 2005


The following values are reported for the boiling point of 3-nitrotoluene: 231.9 °C at 101 kPa, 156.9 °C at 13.3 kPa, and 50.2 °C at 0.13 kPa.


Roempp, 2009


The boiling point of 3-nitrotoluene is 233 °C at 1013 hPa.


Chemsafe, 2008


The boiling point of 3-nitrotoluene was reported as 232 °C at 101.3 kPa.


Merck Index, 2006-2008


The boiling point of 3-nitrotoluene was reported as 232 °C at 101.3 kPa (760 Torr).


Booth, G., 2005 (Ullmann's)


The boiling point of 3-nitrotoluene was reported as 231.9 °C at 101.3 kPa.


Lide, 2001-2002


The boiling point of 3-nitrotoluene is 232 °C (atmospheric pressure was not reported, it is assumed to be 1 atm (=1013 hPa)).


Hommel, G. (Handbuch der gefährlichen Güter), 1997


The boiling point of 3-nitrotoluene is 231 °C (atmospheric pressure was not reported, it is assumed to be 1 atm (=1013 hPa)).


These values are supported by the data of the BUA report, 1989: 


The boiling point of 3-nitrotoluene is reported as 231.87 °C at 1013 hPa.


The boiling point of 232 °C (mean value) at 101325 Pa was chosen as the key value for chemical saftey assessment.
