Description of key information

Since Annex V of EC Directive 67/548/EEC comprises no test method for the determination of the oxidizing properties of gases, the oxidizing properties of the test substance have been evaluated on a theoretical basis instead of an experimental determination. In general, an organic substance is considered to have no oxidizing properties if the molecule does not contain any oxygen, chlorine or fluorine atoms, or if the molecule contains these atoms but bound to carbon and/or hydrogen atoms only. The molecule contains fluorine atoms but they are bound to carbon atoms only. Hence, it is concluded that the test substance has no oxidizing properties.

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

An organic substance is considered to have no oxidizing properties if the molecule does not contain any oxygen, chlorine or fluorine atoms, or if the molecule contains these atoms but bound to carbon and/or hydrogen atoms only. The molecule contains fluorine atoms but they are bound to carbon atoms only. Hence, it is concluded that the test substance has no oxidizing properties and classification is not warranted.
