Description of key information

Not explosive

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Based on inherent substance properties and manufacturing process.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based upon the chemical structure of the substance and the known synthetic route of manufacture via an exothermic chemical reaction, there is no indication that this substance is thermodynamically unstable. The structure does not contain any of the more commonly known endothermic groups such as: azides, cyano-, dienes, acetylenic, peroxide or chlorate groups.

This plus oxygen balance calculation supports the contention that this substance is unlikely to possess explosive properties. A derogation in respect of this test (Method A14) was requested and accepted by TCNES.
