heptadecane mp ~21C, caprylic acid 16-17C, DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide) 18.5C. coconut oil mp~24-25C. As far as toxicity goes, heptadecane is probably like gasoline/diesel. caprylic acid is a fatty acid slightly corrosive avoid eye or skin contact, DMSO not bad by itself, but readily absorbed through skin and can take toxic chemicals through your skin, so have a care if you are using it around other chemicals. Coconut oil, well, people eat it on popcorn and cook with it, so it is probably the least toxic of everything I can think of. As with all things I advise you to look up these on a MSDS (material safety data sheet) for more info. Hope this helps. heptadecane mp ~21C, caprylic acid 16-17C, DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide) 18.5C. coconut oil mp~24-25C.

Use of knowing the melting point of solid?

The melting point is a specific physical property of all materials; knowing the melting point we can distinguish between different materials.


Does wax have a high melting point?

It has a melting point between 31 degrees Celsius and 80 degrees Celsius, depending on the materials used.


What Covalent Compound Has A Low Melting Point?

water has a relatively low melting and boiling point


What is the temperature called at which a solid changes to a liquid?

This is called the melting point (symbol Tm).The melting point is different for different elements, compounds, and materials. Some solids, wax for example, has a relatively low melting point, while the melting point of some alloys, such as steel, is very high. The melting point of ice is the freezing point of water, subject to the enthalpy of fusion (the heat of fusion).

Factors affecting melting point?

Melting points of materials are affected mainly by one thing and that is the purity. It is impossible to raise the melting point, but it is possible to depress the range, that is the point at which it will begin to melt.

What is the relationship between a materials freezing point and its melting point?

It is the same thing. A melting point or freezing point is when a "material's" temperature stays the same. Then you can decide whether you want to freeze it or melt it by increasing or lowering the temperature.------Thats how my science teacher tought us.


What is the difference between melting point and melting range?

Melting point is a specific and unique temperature for a material; melting range is an interval of temperature.


What is the difference between melting and melting point?
