Additional information

Self-reactive substances

The available data on self-reactive properties of 4-tert-butylcyclohexanol do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008, and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification:

There are no chemical groups associated with explosive or self-reactive properties present in the molecule. Therefore based on the chemical structure the substance is not self-reactive.

Self-heating substances

The available data on self-heating properties of 4-tert-butylcyclohexanol do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008, and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification: the substance has a melting point less than 160 °C and therefore should not be considered for classification in this class since the melting process is endothermic and the substance-air surface is drastically reduced.

Corrosive to metals

The available data on metal corrosiveness of 4-tert-butylcyclohexanol do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008, and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification:

4-tert-Butylcyclohexanol is solid at a temperature of 55 °C and a test according to UN RTDG Test C.1 is not possible. The substance does not become liquid under ambient conditions, therefore classification criteria shall not be applied for the substance as such.
