Description of key information

In accordance with Section 1 of REACH Annex XI testing does not appear scientifically necessary. The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flash point (in combination with their boiling point), the ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The substance has a flashpoint (72°C) and a boiling point of 197 °C, not indicating flammability. However with regards to flammability in contact with water, the structural features of the substance were evaluated and it was concluded that the substance does not contain groups that might lead to the evolution of a dangerous amount of flammable gas when coming into contact with water or damp air (ECHA guidance R.7.1.10.3). No metals, transition metals, boron or silicon are present. Also, handling during the water solubility test confirms this conclusion. 
With regards to pyrophoric properties, evaluation of the structural features of the substance revealed that the substance does not contain any chemical group that might lead to spontaneous ignition a short time after coming into contact with air (ECHA guidance R.7.1.10.3). The auto-ignition temperature is 300 °C.
