Materials and methods

Principles of method if other than guideline:
Combustion performed in a standard laboratory ('VCI') device
Endpoint investigated:
other: combustion

Test material

Reference
Name:
Unnamed
Type:
Constituent
Details on test material:
Chloroacetamide, production lots approved by quality control

Results and discussion

Results:
Simulating a real fire, combustion at 950°C under good air supply gave only very low HCN or NOx ratios < 1 mgN/g chloroacetamide.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Under free fire conditions, chloroacetamide was completely combusted. In the combustion gases, 101 % of the organic carbon was recovered as CO2, exclusively. Under smouldering fire conditions, 61 % of the organic carbon was recovered, mostly as CO (38%), as CO2 (10%), or as CN- (13%) , respectively.
