Endpoint:
oxidising liquids
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
Sample tested:
other: Expert statement
Remarks on result:
other: The test item does not show any evidence of possessing oxidising properties

Examining the structural formula, the following observations are be made:

- The molecule does not contain any functional groups from the list of functional groups imparting oxidising properties.

- The proportion of electronegative atoms in the molecule is low (2 oxygen atoms out of an overall atom count of 49). Both

oxygen atoms are bound to carbon atoms. Furthermore, the electronegative atoms are not bound to one another, nor to any other electronegative elements. To conclude, the assessment against these two criteria indicates strongly that the molecule will not have oxidising properties.

In every respect of the oxidising liquids exemption procedure, the test item does not show any evidence of possessing oxidising properties.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Remarks:
Not oxidising
Conclusions:
It is concluded that the test item has no oxidising properties.
Endpoint:
oxidising liquids
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 oxidising properties and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
the study does not need to be conducted because the organic substance contains oxygen or halogen atoms which are chemically bonded only to carbon or hydrogen and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied

Description of key information

The substance was concluded to be non-oxidising based on its chemical structure in an Expert Statement (Dekra, 2017).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
non oxidising

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The structure of the test substance contains no groups that would infer oxidising properties. This results in an absence of classification under the CLP regulation.
