Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII, the study does not need to be conducted. Potential explosive properties are indicated by the presence of certain reactive groups in the molecule and/or by the oxygen balance. Using the molecular formula of the substance and the molecular weight, the oxygen balance for the major component was calculated to be 41%. This is > -200% and therefore within the region where there may be a potential for explodability. However, there are no plosophores (bond groupings known to give explosive properties) or auxoploses (explosive enhancing groups) present in the structure. The relatively high oxygen balance is considered due to the presence of a phosphate group in the molecule. Overall consideration of the properties does not suggest a risk of explodability. The substance is therefore considered not explosive and no testing was conducted.
