Results and discussion

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Linalyl Isobutyrate is incapable of causing explosions by action of external heating sources.
Executive summary:

A theoretical assessment based on chemical structure of the components in the formulation was carried out to assess the explosion risk of the test substance. From the structural formula of Linalyl Isobutyrate, it can be concluded that the substance is not explosive. The substance does not have the functional groups associated with explosive properties or chemical instability. Linalyl Isobutyrate is incapable of causing explosions by action of external heating sources.
