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.7.1.11.3 (ECHA, May 2008), the oxygen balance (OB) for the test item molecule (CxHyOz) was calculated with the result OB of:

-1600 * (2 * 9 +(20/2) – 2 ) /160.26 = -260

Since the oxygen balance is less than -200, the substance should not have explosive properties.
