Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

The structure of zinc carbonate was assessed for chemical groups that would indicate explosive properties and was found to contain no such groups.  Therefore, the explosive properties of zinc carbonate have been predicted negative based on the chemical structure and experience of handling and use.  

Zinc carbonate decomposes to form zinc oxide and carbon dioxide (endothermic process)

Justification for classification or non-classification

The explosive properties of zinc carbonate have been predicted negative based on chemical structure and experience of handling and use. Classification is not required.
