Description of key information

Additional information

Data for the physic-chemical properties of barium sulfide were provided based on studies for the following endpoints:

(i) granulometry,

(ii) dustiness,

(iii) flammability,

(iv) pyrophoric properties and

(v) auto-flammability.

The results of the studies are reported in the endpoint summary as well as in the accompanying IUCLID database. Data for several endpoints were waived due to intrinsic properties of Barium sulfide and/or based on the criteria as laid down in regulation (EC) 1907/2008.

The other endpoints (i.e. appearance, water solubility) are based on handbook data and/or long time experiences in handling. It is noted, that handbook data for physico-chemical properties are considered to be from a trusted source acc. to "ECHA, Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment – Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance" and therefore, these data were considered reliable.
