Thermal Stability

The DSC-measurements in closed glass crucibles with the test item showed a multistep endothermic effect in the temperature range 265 °C to 340 °C. No further exothermic or endothermic effects were observed up to the final temperature (400 °C and 500 °C, respectively).

An optical inspection showed a discolouration to black after the measurement.

Explosive Properties

The heat of decomposition was below 500 J/g. The test on explosive properties was not necessary due to the heat of decomposition being below 500 J/g.

Interpretation of results:
non explosive
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The test item has no explosive properties in the sense of the European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008, Method A. 14. and in the sense of the EPA Product Properties Test Guideline OPPTS 830.6316.

Description of key information

Bismuth citrate is non explosive

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

The test item has no explosive properties in the sense of the European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008, Method A. 14. and in the sense of the EPA Product Properties Test Guideline OPPTS 830.6316.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The test item has been shown to have no explosive properties therefore the substance is not classified.
