Administrative data

Endpoint:
explosiveness
Type of information:
other: expert judgement based on the molecular structure of the substance and oxygen balance
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
November 15, 2010 - December 21, 2010
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
This study has been performed according to UN and EC guidelines and according to GLP principles.

Any other information on results incl. tables

- Evaluation of the structural features of the substance: the substance does not contain chemical groups which are associated with explosive properties

- The oxygen balance of the test substance was determined according to the equation as mentioned in section 2.1.4.3 of the CLP Regulation. The oxygen balance of the test substance was –271%, which is less than -200%. According to this, the test substance is considered to pose no risk for explodability, in accordance with the CLP Regulation.
