Results and discussion

Any other information on results incl. tables

Examination of the molecular structure of the major components A and B, respectively, present for 59% and 32% in the test substance establishes beyond reasonable doubt that the test substance is incapable of burning, when mixed with cellulose, at a higher or equal rate compared with the maximum burning rate of a reference mixture of cellulose and barium nitrate. The major components do not contain any group that might act as an oxidizing agent. The oxygen atoms that are present in the major components are all bonded to carbon or sulfur, which indicates that the molecule is oxygen-deficient.

The other components, present for 4.7%, as well as the impurities, of which 3% is known and =<1% is unknown, are not to be expected to make the test substance an oxidizing substance. It is not to be expected that an interaction between the different components occurs.
