Specific details on test material used for the study:
Batch No.: 0000056625; Purity: 98/99 %
Key result
Test series:
UN Test series 1
Method:
UN Test 3 (c): Thermal stability test at 75°C
Parameter:
limiting impact energy (J)
Value:
-500
Result:
result is considered "-" (negative)

In the DSC-measurement the energy of the exothermic decomposition of the test substance 98/99 % was below the threshold of -500 J/g. Therefore, no further tests for explosive properties had to be performed. The test substance showed no explosive properties.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Under the study conditions, the test substance showed no explosive properties.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine explosiveness of the test substance according to OECD 113 and UN Manual of Tests and Criteria: Part I. In the DSC-measurement the energy of the exothermic decomposition of the test substance 98/99 % was below the threshold of -500 J/g. Therefore, no further tests for explosive properties had to be performed. Under the study conditions, the test substance showed no explosive properties (Möller, 2017).

Description of key information

The explosiveness was determined according to OECD 113 and UN Manual of Tests and Criteria: Part I (Möller, 2017).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the results of the test on thermal stability, the test substance is classified as following:

UN Transport Regulation:The test substance does not have to be classified as explosive substance in class 1 according to the UN Transport Regulation.

GHS (CLP Regulation EC 1272/2008: Annex 1: 2.1):The test substance does not have to be classified as explosive substance according to GHS or CLP Regulation EC 1272/2008 Annex 1: 2.1, respectively.
