Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Boron Trifluoride is not oxidising as it is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:

Additional information

According to REACH annex VII, column 2, a study on the oxidising properties does not need to be conducted as the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustile materials (in Boron Trifluoride, the fluorines have oxidized the boron and therefore are incapable of further reaction). In addition Boron Trifluoride has no chemical groups associated with oxidising properties as indicated in the Table R.7.1-29 of the REACH "Endpoint specific guidance".

Justification for classification or non-classification

A structural assessment indicates that the substance does not have oxidising properties.
