Description of key information

The test item molecule contains groups that are able to contribute to the explosive property. Therefore, according to "Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment", Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, R. (ECHA, May 2008), the oxygen balance (OB) for the test item molecule (CxHyOz) was calculated with the result OB of:

-1600 * (2 * 7 +(16/2) – 4 ) /164.2 = -175.4

The oxygen balance is higher than -200. This is due to the presence of ether groups in the molecular structure. As these groups are not chemically instable or highly energetic, the test substance can be considered as not explosive.
