Preliminary screening test.

In the preliminary test, about 30 g of the test item was used to form the test pile (excess substance included). Within the flame application time of two minutes, to one end of the pile, charring and smouldering of the substance was observed. This zone was propagating very slowly. After approximately 12 minutes and approximately 10 mm, the reaction extinguished. Because of this result (propagation time > 4 minutes for 100 mm) the main test was not deemed necessary and the test item was assessed to be not highly flammable.

Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Platinum(II) tetraammine diacetate has been determined to be not highly flammable as, in a preliminary test, it failed to propagate quickly enough. A main test was not carried out.
Executive summary:

In a guideline-compliant study, conducted to GLP, platinum(II) tetraammine diacetate was found to be not highly flammable. In the preliminary test, although charring and smouldering were observed, the burning failed to propagate 100 mm within the time limit (4 minutes), and a main test was therefore not carried out.

Description of key information

In a guideline-compliant study, conducted to GLP, platinum(II) tetraammine diacetate was found to be not highly flammable. In the preliminary test, although charring and smouldering were observed, the burning failed to propagate 100 mm within the time limit (4 minutes), and a main test was therefore not carried out (Mekelburger, 2004f).

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the results of the available and reliable study, classification under EU CLP for flammability is not required.
