oxidising solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with oxidising properties and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied

Description of key information

Dirubidium oxide does not exhibit oxidizing properties: it will not cause or contribute to the combustion of other materials by virtue of its own inherent oxidation or reduction potential. There are no functional groups or other structural alerts present that would indicate that this substance would promote oxidation and so it should be classified accordingly. It is an inorganic solid with a high melting point that is thermally stable. Thermal stability of group 1 oxides increases down the group (as the size of the cation increases and polarising power of the cation decreases). Also experience from handling and manufacture confirms that dirubidium oxide has no oxidizing properties.
