Description of key information

The regulatory position (specifically the EU Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals, REACH, Regulation) with regards to explosivity is that a study does not need to be conducted if there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule; or– the substance contains chemical groups associated with explosive properties which include oxygen and the calculated oxygen balance is less than –200

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on analysis of structural groups present in the molecule the substance does not contain any functional groups associated with explosivity and in addition the oxygen balance is less than -200 so that the substance is not considered explosive. Thus, the substance is not subject to classification and labelling for explosivity according to CLP (Regulation EC No 1272/2008) or DSD (Directive 67/548/EEC).
