Key result
Sample tested:
test mixture 1:1
Parameter:
mean pressure rise time
Result:
20.11 s
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The oxidising properties of 3-methylsulfolane were tested in contact with dried cellulose and with reference to 65% nitric acid. The mean pressure rise time of 3-methylsulfolane was 20.11 seconds. The test substance, 3-methylsulfolane was found to have a mean pressure rise time greater than that observed for the nitric acid reference substance. The test substance 3-methylsulfolane is therefore not considered to be an oxidising liquid.
Executive summary:

The substance 3-methylsulfolane has a mean pressure time of 20.11 seconds according to the regulation guideline EU Method A.21. The test substance, 3-methylsulfolane was found to have a mean pressure rise time greater than that observed for the nitric acid reference substance. The test substance is therefore not considered to be an oxidising liquid.

Description of key information

The test substance, 3-methylsulfolane was found to have a mean pressure rise time greater than that observed for the nitric acid reference substance. The substance is therefore not considered to be an oxidising liquid.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
non oxidising
