Description of key information

Following an expert assessment of the test material, it was determined that it is not likely to possess oxidising properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

The assessment of the structural properties of the test material was awarded a reliability score of 2 in accordance with the criteria set forth by Klimisch et al (1997). 

A structural examination of the test material was carried out in accordance with the ‘Guidance on Information Requirements and Chemical Safety Assessment – Chapter R.7a: Endpoint Specific Guidance’ to assess its oxidising potential.

A substance may have oxidising properties when the electronegative atoms which are present constitute a high proportion of the molecule and are bound to elements in a high oxidation state or the electronegative atoms are bonded to each other or to other electronegative elements such as iodine, nitrogen, sulphur or phosphorus.

An examination of the structure of the test material reveals that it contains none of the reactive groups or oxidising compounds known to increase oxidising power. It does contain an electronegative atom (O), but this is bonded only to carbon and hydrogen, and therefore is unlikely to add to the oxidising power.

Following an expert assessment of the test material, it was determined that it is not likely to possess oxidising properties.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with the criteria for classification as defined in Annex I, Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, the substance does not require classification with respect to oxidising properties.

 

In accordance with the criteria for classification as defined in Annex VI, Directive 67/548/EEC (DSD), the substance does not require classification with respect to oxidising properties.
