Description of key information

Testing of flammability does not appear scientifically necessary according to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex XI, Section 1.
- Testing of flammability of solids (A.10) and gases (A.11) is not considered to be required, since 2-ethylhexanoic acid, molybdenum salt is a liquid substance
- Testing for flammability in contact with water (A.12) is not considered to be required, because 2-ethylhexanoic acid, molybdenum salt does not contain groups that might lead to a reaction with water or damp air, leading to the development of dangerous amounts of gas or gases which may be highly flammable
- Testing of pyrophoric properties of solids and liquids (A.13) is not considered to be required, since 2-ethylhexanoic acid, molybdenum salt is stable at ambient temperature. It does not contain any chemical group that might lead to spontaneous ignition a short time after coming in contact with air at room temperature (approx. 20 °C)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Flammability

Testing of flammability is not considered to be required, since 2-ethylhexanoic acid, molybdenum salt is a liquid substance (no melting, only softening in the range of -80°C - 190°C) and not a solid (in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex XI, Section 1).

Pyrophoric properties

Testing for pyrophoric properties of liquids is not considered to be required, since 2-ethylhexanoic acid, molybdenum salt is stable at ambient temperature. It does not contain any chemical groups that might lead to spontaneous ignition a short time after coming in contact with air at room temperature (ca. 20 °C) . Furthermore, long-term industrial experience in handling shows that 2-ethylhexanoic acid, molybdenum salt does not ignite in contact with air (in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex XI, Section 1).

Flammability in contact with water

Testing for flammability in contact with water is not considered to be required, because 2-ethylhexanoic acid, molybdenum salt does not contain groups that might lead to a reaction with water or damp air, leading to the development of dangerous amounts of gas or gases which may be highly flammable. Furthermore, long-term industrial experience in practical handling of 2-ethylhexanoic acid, molybdenum salt shows that it does not react with water, and recent experimental testing for water solubility has also not reported any formation of gases (in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex XI, Section 1.2).
