Abstract
For the safe handling of 2-methyl-1-butanol being used in various ways in the chemical industry, the flash point and the autoignition temperature(AIT) of 2-methyl-1-butanol was experimented. And, the lower explosion limit of 2-methyl-1-butanol was calculated by using the lower flash point obtained in the experiment. The flash points of 2-methyl-1-butanol by using the Setaflash and Pensky-Martens closed-cup testers measured $\small{40^{\circ}C}$ and $\small{44^{\circ}C}$, respectively. The flash points of 2-methyl-1-butanol by using the Tag and Cleveland open cup testers are measured $\small{49^{\circ}C}$ and $\small{47^{\circ}C}$. The AIT of 2-methyl-1-butanol by ASTM 659E tester was measured as $\small{335^{\circ}C}$. The lower explosion limit by the measured flash point $\small{40^{\circ}C}$ was calculated as 1.30 Vol.%. It was possible to predict lower explosion limit by using the experimental flash point or flash point in the literature.
