Description of key information

Data waiving in accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII. Prediction based on chemical structure: explosive properties predicted negative (EU Method A.14)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Data waiving in accordance with REACH Regulation Annex VII column 2, 7.11 Explosive properties: the study does not need to be conducted if there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule.

The method A.14 Explosive properties (EC No 440/2008) lists the Handbook of Reactive Chemical Hazards (4th edition, Butterworths, London, 1990 ISBN: 0-750-60103-5) by Bretherick L. as the reference for the determination of reactive chemical groups. The 7th edition (Academic Press, 2007) was adopted for the prediction. According to the method A.14 and column 2 of Annex VII, if the substance has no reactive chemical groups, the product can be predicted to be non explosive and the actual test does not need to be conducted.

In accordance with the literature work by Bretherick, the structure of the commercial titanate product does not indicate that there are any explosive properties associated with the product. Furthermore, the substance has failed to react when exposed to a bunsen flame for two minutes (study record 4.13 Flammability).

Justification for classification or non-classification

The explosive properties of the substance have been predicted negative using a procedure compatible with Method A.14 Explosive Properties of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008. The substance is therefore not classified as explosive.
