On the flash point of benzoic acid

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The reported flash point of benzoic acid is examined in terms of vapour pressures and stoichiometric proportions and found to be significantly aberrant. A possible explanation is that during heating in the flash point apparatus there is decarboxylation catalysed by the metal surface.
