Any other information on results incl. tables

Magnesium bis(2 -ethylbutanoate) has been predicted not to be explosive based upon it's chemical structure.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Based on the chemical structure of the test material the result for the explosive properties has been predicted negative.
Executive summary:

The flammability (solids) was determined by measuring the burning rate of test material prepared as a pile of set dimensions.  Testing was conducted using Method A10 of Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (which constitutes Annex V of Council Directive 67/548/EEC).

Based on the chemical structure of the test material the result for the explosive properties has been predicted negative.
