Description of key information

The oxygen balance of Epoxidized Soybean Oil (ESBO) (CAS No. 8013-07-8) is substantially more negative than -200%.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

Considering the structural environment of oxygen in the molecule and the oxygen balance of Epoxidized Soybean Oil (ESBO) (CAS No. 8013-07-8), it can be concluded, beyond reasonable doubt, that Epoxidized Soybean Oil (ESBO) (CAS No. 8013-07-8) is unlikely to be an oxidizer and will be incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials. It need not be tested experimentally for oxidizing properties.

The molecular formula is C57H98O12

MW= 975.41

Oxygen balance = [12 – (2*57)-(2*0)-0.5 (98 -0)) x 1600/975.41

Oxygen balance = -247.69%

The oxygen balance of Epoxidized Soybean Oil (ESBO) (CAS No. 8013-07-8) is substantially more negative than -200%.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Considering the structural environment of oxygen in the molecule and the oxygen balance of Epoxidized Soybean Oil (ESBO) (CAS No. 8013-07-8), it can be concluded, beyond reasonable doubt, that Epoxidized Soybean Oil (ESBO) (CAS No. 8013-07-8) is unlikely to be an oxidizer and will be incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials. It need not be tested experimentally for oxidizing properties.

The test material is not classified according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 or Directive 67/548/EEC.
