relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
From October 2009 to March 2010
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to guideline
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Key result
Relative self-ignition temperature:
> 400 °C
Remarks on result:
other: at atm. press. of ca.1.0 atm

Amides, coco, N-(2-hydroxypropyl) showed no self-ignition reaction up to temperature 400 °C in accordance with EU method A.16. criteria. Temperature versus time curve showed an endothermic event at approximately 40 - 60 °C, which was probably due to the test substance melting.

Under the study condictions, the test substance showed no self-ignition reaction up to a temperature of 400°C.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the relative self-ignition temperature of the test substance according to EU Method A.16. The substance was filled into a cube with a wire mesh top and placed in an oven. The temperature of the oven and the sample were continuously recorded using thermocouples while the temperature of the oven increased up to 400°C at a rate of 0.5°C/min. Under the study condictions, the test substance showed no self-ignition reaction up to a temperature of 400°C ( Frączak and Chmielewska, 2010).

Description of key information

The self-ignition temperature was assessed according to EU Method A.16 (Frączak, 2010).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Autoflammability / Self-ignition temperature at 101 325 Pa:
400 °C
