Oxidising properties:

Additional information

A test substance is considered an oxidizing substance when a mixture of the substance and cellulose in a 1:1 ratio (by mass) spontaneously ignites or the mean pressure rise time of the mixture is less than or equal to mean pressure rise time of a 1:1 reference mixture (by mass) of 65% aqueous nitric acid and cellulose


The test substance is a yeast extract and contains approximately 50% water. It is therefore impossible that the test substance will act as an oxidizing substance.


In conclusion,Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Extract (Springer 0204/0-LQ-L) has no oxidizing properties

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available information Saccharomyces cerevisiae, ext. does not need to be classified for oxidising properties according to DSD or GLP.
