Description of key information

Explosivity
Justification For data Waiving (ECHA TGD ref 7.1.11)

From the compositional description and the structural formula given, it can be concluded that this substance CAS 12136-45-7 , (EINECS) 235-227-6 does not exhibit explosive properties (will not detonate or deflagrate, under conditions of excessive heating with or without confinement, impact, or friction to produce heat and or gas). There are no functional groups or other structural alerts associated with explosive properties or tendencies that would indicate that this substance will manifest explosive properties. Similarly, the calculated Oxygen Balance is less than -200 suggesting that testing need not be conducted and that a negative result can be predicted. Thus, this substance should not be classified as dangerous according to the criteria for explosivity, which is furthermore confirmed by long term handling experience.
According to “ANNEX VII- STANDARD INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS FOR SUBSTANCES MANUFACTURED OR IMPORTED IN QUANTITIES OF 1 TONNE OR MORE , study for Explosive properties does not need to be conducted if:
—there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecul
Expert Judgement
Due to the absence of chemical groups associated with Explosive properties or other structural alerts this substance is not considered to exhibit Explosiveness.
There are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecules.
This product is generally non explosive as well on the basis of the chemical structure.
Therefore testing for Explosive properties does not need to be performed.

Expert Judgement

 

Due to the absence of chemical groups associated with Explosive properties or other structural alerts this substance is not considered to exhibit Explosiveness.

There are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecules.

This product is generally non explosive as well on the basis of the chemical structure.

 

Therefore testing for Explosive properties does not need to be performed.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the hazard assessment of Dipotassium oxide/ Potassium oxide in section 2.1 and 2.2 in IUCLID 5.4, available data for the substance and according to the criteria described in Directive 67/548/EEC and in the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP Regulation):

 

 

Directive 67/548

E;R2 Risk of explosion by shock, friction, fire or other sources of ignition

E;R3 Extreme risk of explosion by shock, friction, fire or other source of ignition

O; R7 May cause fire

O; R8 Contact with combustible material may cause fire

O; R9 Explosive when mixed with combustible material

F+; R12 Extremely flammable

F; R11 Highly flammable

F; R15 Contact with water liberates extremely flammable gas

F; R17 Spontaneously flammable in air

R10 Flammable
