An analysis of the substance has been performed in accordance with section 2.1.4.2 of the CLP regulation (EC 1272/2008). The assessment has been made with reference to the structural motifs that are listed in Table A6.1 in Appendix 6 of the UN RTDG, Manual of Tests and Criteria as being indicative of explosive behaviour in organic materials, to identify the presence of any structural features commonly associated with explosive behaviour.

 Functional Group  Comments/Conclusions
 C-C unsaturation (acetylenes, acetylides, 1,2-dienes)  Not present
 C-Metal and N-Metal (Grignard reagents, organo-lithium compounds)  Not present
 Contiguous N atoms (azides, aliphatic azo compounds, diazonium salts, hydrazines  Not present
 Contiguous O atoms (peroxides, ozonides)  Not present
 N-O (hydroxylamines, nitrates, nitro compounds, nitroso compounds, N-oxides)  Not present
 N-Halogen (chloramines, fluoroamines)  Not present
 O-Halogen (chlorates, perchlorates)  Not present

It was concluded that glutaric acid is not an explosive due to the lack of structural features commonly associated with explosive behavior.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
It was concluded that glutaric acid is not an explosive due to the lack of structural features commonly associated with explosive behaviour.
Executive summary:

Glutaric acid has been assessed for explosiveness. The assessment is based on an examination of the components used in the manufacture of the substance and the likely products of that reaction. It was concluded that glutaric acid is not an explosive due to the lack of structural features commonly associated with explosive behavior.

Description of key information

An expert assessment was performed to determine the explosiveness of the substance. It was concluded that glutaric acid is not an explosive due to the lack of structural features commonly associated with explosive behavior.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
