Results and discussion

Any other information on results incl. tables

Based on the evaluation of the molecular structure of the substance it was concluded that the substance does not contain groups that might lead to ignition in contact with water and/or to the evolution of a flammable gas. Moreover, the substance was dissolved in water during the determination of the water solubility (see section 4.8). It demonstrated that the substance does not ignite spontaneously in contact with water.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: not highly flammable in contact with water
Conclusions:
Based on the evaluation of structural features of the substance and based on experience during handling in the water solubility test, the substance is considered "not highly flammable¿ in contact with water.
