Description of key information

Not oxidising (based on chemical structure)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

The substance does not contain fluorine or chlorine. The substance contains oxygen; however, the oxygen is chemically bound only to carbon atoms.

Comparison of the functional groups listed in the GIRCSA, Chapter R.7a, May 2008, Table R.7.1-29, with the chemical structure indicates no functional groups which have been associated with oxidising properties.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance is not considered oxidising according to the criteria given in test method A21, Oxidising Properties (Liquids), section 1.1, paragraph 2 (examination of the chemical structure) in Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008. As a result the substance does not meet the criteria for classification under Directive 67/548/EEC, as amended for the 28th time in Directive 2001/59/EC, Annex VI, 2.2.2.

 

According to the additional criteria for classification under Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, Annex I, part 2, 2.13.4, if the molecule does not contain oxygen, fluorine or chlorine, or contains these atoms only bound to carbon or hydrogen, then testing is not required. As a result, this substance does not meet the criteria for classification under Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
