Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Additional information

According to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex VII, Column 2, 7.13, a study on the oxidizing properties of the substance does not need to be conducted if the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials on the basis of chemical structure. According to the Technical Report on Development of an Enhanced Hazard Classification System for Oxidizing Chemicals (Ed., Buc, EC and Hoffman, DJ) by the National Fire Protection Foundation (April, 2006, Quincy, MA, U. S. A.), oxidizing chemicals are characterized as having specific oxygen or halide arrangements in their chemical structure, which can undergo oxidation/reduction reactions.


As this molecule contains no functional group associated with oxidizing properties (nitrate, nitrite, organic nitro, fluorodinitro, metal oxides, N-halogen derivatives, difluoroamino derivatives, or oxohalogen derivatives), it is not considered as an oxidizing chemical, and is not expected to increase the combustion of other substances. Chemicals are excluded from being oxidisers if they do not contain oxygen, or if the oxygen, fluorine or chlorine is bonded only to carbon and hydrogen. As the structure of this substance contains oxygen bonded only to carbon, it is not an oxidiser and the criterion for this adaptation are met.
