Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
Type of information:
other: Expert statement
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Expert statement
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.14 (Explosive properties)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): Dimethyl Piperazine
- Substance type: Clear liquid
- Physical state: Liquid
- Lot/batch No.: 1903-3/2012
Key result
Parameter:
other: Expert statement
Remarks:
based on the structural formula of the sample
Remarks on result:
negative (not further specified)
Remarks:
The structure does not comprise no chemical groups associated with explosive properties or oxygen group

Examination of the structural formula for the sample indicates:

- There are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties

- The sample does not contain oxygen

Based on this combination of factors, it is beyond reasonable doubt that the material will not exhibit explosive properties. There are no elements of the screening procedure which begin to suggest that explosive properties may be exhibited by the substance. The conduct of the A14 tests is therefore not considered appropriate.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The substance is concluded not to be explosive as based on the chemical structure the substance does not contain any chemically instable or highly energetic groups that might lead to an explosion. In addition, the substance does not contain oxygen.
Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
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 explosive properties

Description of key information

Based on the chemical structure, the test substance is determined not to have explosive properties. This conclusion is supported by a theoretical expert statement according to test method EC A.14 (Younis, 2013).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

1,4 -dimethyl piperazine needs not to be classified as explosive as based on the chemical structure the substance does not contain any chemically instable or highly energetic groups that might lead to an explosion.
