Shock test: the sample of NMMO was observed to exhibit no reaction at 40 J. The test result is therefore considered negative.

Friction test: the sample of NMMO was observed to exhibit no reaction at 360 N. The test result is therefore considered negative.

Heat test: the sample of NMMO did not exhibit an explosion during any of the tests. The test result is therefore considered negative.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
NMMO was observed not to be explosive under the conditions of the shock, friction and heat test.
Executive summary:

Explosive properties of the test item were determined according to EU Method A.14. NMMO was observed not to be explosive under the conditions of the shock, friction and heat test.

Description of key information

From a GLP study in accordance with the EC A.14 test method, NMMO was concluded not to have explosive properties (Younis, 2012). 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on a GLP study in accordance with EC test method A.14, NMMO is concluded not to be explosive (Younis, 2012).
