Additional information

The structural formula of the test item (see page 9) contains none of the functional groups quoted in ‘Recommendations On The Transport Of Dangerous Goods – Manual of Tests and Criteria’ (fourth revised edition, appendix 6, table A 6.1) or ‘Bretherick’s – Handbook of Reactive Chemical Hazards’ (6th Edition, Volume 2, p 128 ff) which may indicate explosive properties. Therefore, it can be concluded by expert judgement that ‘Polyether V 531' is not explosive. The determination according to EC Guideline A 14 is not necessary (Currenta, 2009).
