Test material

Constituent 1
Chemical structure
Reference substance name:
2-chloroacetamide
EC Number:
201-174-2
EC Name:
2-chloroacetamide
Cas Number:
79-07-2
Molecular formula:
C2H4ClNO
IUPAC Name:
2-chloroacetamide
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.
