Description of key information

Key study: EU method A.17. GLP study.
Examination of the structural formula establishes beyond reasonable doubt that the test substance is incapable of burning, when mixed with cellulose, at a higher or equal rate compared with the maximum burning rate of a reference mixture of cellulose and barium nitrate. The test substance does contain oxygen, however, the oxygen is chemically bonded to a carbon atom. From this it can be concluded that the test substance has no oxidizing properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no
