boiling point

  

Definition

Temperature at which a liquid turns into gas. For water or water-based liquids, this temperature is around 100°C (212° F) but solvent-based liquids generally have lower boiling points (they need comparatively less heat to turn into vapor). Flammable liquids with boiling points much lower than that of water are greater fire hazards, and require special precautions in handling, storage, and transportation.
