Description of key information

Flash point [tetrahydro-2-methylfuran]: -10 ± 2°C (ISO 3679)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flash point at 101 325 Pa:
-10 °C

Additional information

A measured flash point of -10 ± 2°C was determined for the substance in accordance with ISO 3679 and in compliance with GLP. The result is considered to be reliable and selected as key study. This is supported by a flash point of -11°C which was reported for the substance in a secondary source to which reliability is unassignable.

A flash point of -10°C and a boiling point of 78°C, indicate that the substance should be classified as a flammable liquid according to the criteria of EC Regulation 1272/2008.
