Reference
Endpoint:
relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
From October 27, 2017 to February 27, 2018
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)

GLP compliance:
yes
Key result
Remarks on result:
no self ignition observed under the test conditions

Endothermic activity was observed at approximately 104°C which is believed to be decomposition. The sample continued to track the oven temperature for the duration of the test. On completion of testing a black solid residue remained.

Conclusions:
Under the study conditions, no self autio-ignition of the test substance was observed.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the relative self-ignition temperature of the test substance, according to the EU Method A.16, in compliance with GLP. Endothermic activity was observed at approximately 104°C, which was believed to be decomposition. The sample continued to track the oven temperature for the duration of the test. On completion of testing a black solid residue remained. Under the study conditions, no self-ignition of the test substance was observed (Chilworth, 2018).

Description of key information

Relative self-ignition temperature for the test substance was determined according to EU Method A.16 (Chilworth, 2018).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No self-ignition observed; the test substance was found to decompose at approximately 104°C.
