Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
Type of information:
other: Statement
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Based on the molecular structure a statement rather than a full study was considered sufficient to cover this endpoint.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.12 (Flammability (Contact with Water))
Deviations:
not applicable
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)

The structure of the test substance does not contain groups that might lead to the evolution of a dangerous amount of flammable gas when coming into contact with water or damp air. No metals, transition metals, boron or silicon are present. The impurities, present for =< 0.3% in the test substance, were not taken into account but it is not to be expected that these have any influence.

Interpretation of results:
other: not highly flammable in contact with water
Conclusions:
Ditetrahydrofurylpropane is not highly flammable in contact with water or damp air.
Executive summary:

In a GLP expert statement it was concluded that the substance is not highly flammable in contact with water as the substance lacks structural alerts, is known to be soluble in water and experience in handling showed that the substance does not react with water. In accordance with Section 1 of REACH Annex XI, testing was not performed.

Endpoint:
flammability
Type of information:
other: Statement
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Based on the molecular structure a statement rather than a full study was considered sufficient to cover this endpoint.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.13 (Pyrophoric Properties of Solids and Liquids)
Deviations:
not applicable
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)

The molecular structure of the test substance does not contain any chemical groups that might lead to spontaneous ignition a short time after coming into contact with air. The impurities, present for =<0.3% in the test substance, were not taken into account but it is not to be expected that these have any influence.

 

Furthermore, experience in handling during this project shows that the test substance does not ignite spontaneously after coming in contact with air at room temperature.

 

Interpretation of results:
other: not pyrophoric
Conclusions:
Ditetrahydrofurylpropane is not pyrophoric.
Executive summary:

In a GLP expert statement it was concluded that the substance has no pyrophoric properties as the substance lacks structural alerts and experience in handling showed that the substance does not ignite spontaneously when coming into contact with air at normal temperatures. In accordance with Section 1 of REACH Annex XI, testing was not performed.

Description of key information

Statements for flammability in contact with water and pyrophoric properties based on evaluation of structural features of Ditetrahydrofurylpropane. Evaluations according to A.12 and A.13.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

- not highly flammable in contact with water  

- no pyrophoric properties

Justification for classification or non-classification

With a flash point > 60 °C and a boiling point of 244°C, the substance is not considered to be a flammable liquid according to CLP Regulation (EC) 1272/2008.
