Executive summary:

Introduction

The explosive properties of Trimethylolethane were determined by theoretical assessment. The prediction was undertaken using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A.14 Explosive Properties of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

Method

The structure of the test item was assessed for chemical groups that imply explosive properties. Examples of such groups are C-C unsaturated, C-metal, N-metal, contiguous oxygen atoms, contiguous nitrogen atoms, N-halogens, O-halogens and N-O.

Results and Conclusion

Based on the chemical structure of the test item the result for the explosive properties was predicted negative.
