Key result
Parameter:
other: theoretical basis
Remarks on result:
other: no oxidising properties

Examining the structural formula, the following observations can be made:

- The molecule does not contain functional groups imparting oxidising properties.

- Oxidising properties can exist when:

-  the electronegative atoms which are present constitute a high proportion of the molecule and are bound to elements in a high oxidation state. In the case of JEFFSOL® AG 1700 the proportion of electronegative atoms in the molecule is low (2 oxygen atoms out of an overall atom count of 27). Both oxygen atoms are bound to carbon atoms.

- the electronegative atoms are bonded to each other or to other electronegative elements such as iodine, nitrogen, sulphur or phosphorus.  In the case of JEFFSOL® AG 1700, the electronegative atoms are not bound to one another, nor to any other electronegative elements.

Assessment against these two criteria indicates strongly that the molecule will not have oxidising properties.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
On the basis of the exercise, the material should be considered as not oxidising and should not be subjected to experimental testing. The material meets all criteria for exemption from testing and has a structure not at all conducive with that required to exhibit oxidising tendencies.
Endpoint:
oxidising liquids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with oxidising properties and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied

Description of key information

The substance was concluded to be non-oxidising based on its chemical structure in an Expert Statement (Dekra, 2018). There are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with oxidising properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
non oxidising

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The test substance is not to be classified for oxidising properties.
