Endpoint:
flammable liquids: obsolete as covered by section 'Flash point'
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the organic substance does not contain metals or metalloids and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied

Description of key information

Flammability: waived

Pyrophoric property: waived

Flammability in contact with water: waived

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Flammability: The substance is a liquid and therefore the flashpoint has been determined.

Pyrophoric property:

Pyrophoric study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied.

Flammability in contact with water:

The study for flammability in contact with water does not need to be conducted because the organic substance does not contain metals or metalloids and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Flammable liquids:

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 section 2.6.1, flammable liquid means a liquid have a flash point of not more than 60℃. The flash point of this substance was determined as 217 ℃, so the classification procedure need not be applied for this substance.

Pyrophoric liquids:

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 section 2.9.4.1, the classification procedure for pyrophoric liquids need not be applied when experience in manufacture or handling shows that the substance or mixture does not ignite spontaneously on coming into contact with air at normal temperatures (i.e. the substance is known to be stable at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days)). As experience show this substance does not ignite spontaneously on coming into contact with air at normal temperature, so the classification procedure for pyrophoric liquids need not be applied for this substance.

Substances and mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases:

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 section 2.12.4.1(a), the classification procedure for this class need not be applied if the chemical structure of the substance or mixture does not contain metals or metalloids. As no metals or metalloids present in the molecule of this substance, so the classification procedure for this class need not be applied for this substance.
