Applying the internationally recognised UN Recommendation criteria, FP-100 is not to be classified as explosive material and no experimental determination according to the EC test guideline A.14 has to be performed. Thus it can be concluded beyond a reasonable doubt, that FP-100 is not a potential explosive and does not have a potential for rapid energy release. Nevertheless, this judgement is in respect to classification; it does not necessarily mean that any processing hazards can be discounted.
The explosive properties of FP-100 were
estimated based on the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous
Goods (Manual of Tests and Criteria, Annex 6, Orange Book, 3 edition,
1999) where a set of criteria is compiled to identify materials being
1. Reactive Groups: The appraisal of the
molecular structure indicates no risk of rapid decomposition. FP-100
does not contain any of the structural features mentioned in the UN
Recommendations. The occurrence of other chemical groups associated with
explosive properties as described in the literature1 was also
considered. No such groups were present.
2. Oxygen Balance: Although an oxygen
balance calculation (GB > -200) indicates further consideration of the
endpoint was necessary, it is not thought fully appropriate for the
evaluation of the explosive properties of this substance as it does not
adequately take into account the structural subunits containing nitrogen
3. Calorimetric Tests: The exothermic
decomposition energy was determined using Differential Scanning
Calorimetry in a closed, gold plated high pressure vessel (DSC). The
calorimetric test is of special importance for the evaluation of
compounds containing chemical groups associated with explosive
properties (see item 1). The decomposition energy (Δ HDecdetermined
between room temperature and 500°C) was found to be about 10 J/g thus
being far below the UN limit of 500 J/g. The onset point of the
exothermic peak was at about 315°C.
Justification for the classification is described in the section above.
