Endpoint:
oxidising liquids
Study period:
From 2016-08-24 to 2017-05-09
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
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
reference to same study

Qualifier:
no guideline required
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The aim of the study was to collect data on the test item in order to determine if experimental studies relative to explosive properties (UN Test series 1 to 3) and oxidising properties (UN Test O.2) are required. The criteria of classification and labelling used in this study are in agreement with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 (CLP).
GLP compliance:
no
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Composition of test material: 2-carboxyethyl acrylate oligomers (= homopolymers of acrylic acid + 2-carboxyethyl acrylate) and acrylic acid
- Analytical purity: >=99%
- Purity test date: 24 August 2016
- Lot/batch No.: BA5H22021
- Expiration date of the lot/batch: 24 August 2017
- Appearance: Colourless limpid liquid
- Storage: In darkness at room temperature

According to structural formulas, acrylic acid, 2-carboxyethyl acrylate and acrylic acid homopolymer are not expected to have oxidising properties. Literature data available for these substances do not mention any oxidising properties. Accordingly, the test item is not expected to present a significant hazard for oxidising properties, and testing is considered as unnecessary.

Interpretation of results:
other: not considered as oxidising
Conclusions:
The test item is not expected to present a significant hazard for oxidising properties.
Executive summary:

The REACH substance is composed of homopolymers of acrylic acid, dimers of acrylic acid (2-carboxyethyl acrylate) and unreacted monomers (acrylic acid). According to structural formulas, none of these substances are expected to have oxidising properties. Literature data available for these substances do not mention any oxidising properties. Accordingly, the REACH substance is not expected to present a significant hazard for oxidising properties, and testing is considered as unnecessary.
