Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII, testing of TEA-Esterquats for oxidising properties does not need to be conducted, as the substances do not contain any structural groups known to be correlated with a tendency to react exothermally with combustible material. In addition, the thermodynamic calculations and the negative oxygen balance for partially unsaturated TEA-Esterquat indicate that the substance may rather be assessed as combustible than to have oxidising properties. In conclusion, structural aspects and estimated thermodynamic properties indicate that  partially unsaturated TEA-Esterquat must not be considered to have oxidising properties. This is laid down in the supporting study
