Any other information on results incl. tables

The mixture of test substance 2-methoxy-5-nitrophenyl acetate and cellulose showed different behaviour then a mixture of reference substance - barium nitrate Ba(NO3)2 and cellulose. On the basis of obtained results, it is obvious that the test substance is certainly a better oxidant than the reference substance Ba(NO3)2; thus 2-methoxy-5-nitrophenyl acetate should be considered as a substance with oxidizing properties.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: oxidising: maximum burning rate equal or higher than reference mixture
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
On the basis of obtained results, it is obvious that the test substance is certainly a better oxidant than the reference substance Ba(NO3)2; thus 2-methoxy-5-nitrophenyl acetate should be considered as a substance with oxidizing properties.
Executive summary:

The oxidizing properties of test substance, 2-methoxy-5-nitrophenyl acetate, were determined.

The procedure was performed according to the Method A.17 Oxidizing properties (Solids), Council Regulation (EC) No.440/2008, published in O.J. L 142, 2008.

Powdered mixtures of test substance and cellulose were prepared in provided weight ratios. Burning time of prepared mixtures was recorded. Burning time was compared with burning time of reference mixture (barium nitrate and cellulose).

The mixture of test substance 2-methoxy-5-nitrophenyl acetate and cellulose showed different behaviour then a mixture of reference substance - barium nitrate Ba(NO3)2 and cellulose.

On the basis of obtained results, it is obvious that the test substance is certainly a better oxidant than the reference substance Ba(NO3)2; thus 2-methoxy-5-nitrophenyl acetate should be considered as a substance with oxidizing properties.
