Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
Type of information:
other: Expert statement
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Study period:
2017
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Expert statement following the UN Appendix 6 Screening procedures
Qualifier:
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Expert statement.
GLP compliance:
no

Examination of the structural formula of the compound indicates that:

- There are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties

- The oxygen is not bound in energetic functional groups – it is bound in CO groups which do not possess explosive behaviour.The oxygen balance is -242 which is below the criteria for consideration (-200).

Based on this combination of factors, it is beyond reasonable doubt that the material will not exhibit explosive properties.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Remarks:
Non explosive
Conclusions:
It is concluded that the test item does not have explosive properties.
Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with explosive properties

Description of key information

According to an expert statement (Dekra, 2017), The structure of the test substance contains no groups that would infer explosive properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance does not need to be classified as explosive.
