Description of key information

Method

The explosive properties were predicted using Method A14 Explosive Properties of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Procedure

  

The test item is a multi component substance consisting of the following:-

Di-isobutyl succinate

Di-isobutyl glutarate

Di isobutyl adipate

The structures have been assessed for chemical groups that imply explosive properties. Examples of such groups are C-C unsaturated, C-metal, N-metal, contiguous oxygen atoms, contiguous nitrogen atoms, N-halogens, O-halogens, N-O. Examples of these groups are.

Structural Features

Examples

C-C unsaturated

Acetylenes, acetylides, 1,2 dienes

C-metal, N-metal

Grignard reagents, organo-lithium compounds

Contiguous oxygen atoms

Peroxides, ozonides

Contiguous nitrogen atoms

Azides, aliphatic azo compounds, diazonium salts, hydrazines, sulphonyl hydrazides

N-halogens

Chloramines, fluoroamines

O-halogens

Chlorates, perchlorates, iodosyl compounds

N-O

Hydroxylamines, nitrates, nitro compounds, N‑oxides, 1,2-oxazoles

Full structural details are given in Bretherick’s Handbook of Reactive Chemical Hazards, 4thEdition, Butterworths,, 1990.

Results.

There are no chemical groups present in the structures that would imply explosive properties

Conclusion.

Based on the chemical structures for the components of the test item the result for the explosive properties has been predicted negative.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the chemical structures for the components of the test item the result for the explosive properties has been predicted negative.
