Reference
Endpoint:
explosiveness, other
Type of information:
other: expert statement
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
test procedure in accordance with generally accepted scientific standards and described in sufficient detail
Remarks:
A modern expert statement examining the chemical composition of the substance to evaluate if explosive groups are present.
Qualifier:
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
A theoretical assessment was performed.
GLP compliance:
no
Key result
Parameter:
other: Examination of the chemical structure
Remarks on result:
other: Examination of the chemical structure of the substance indicates it does not contain any of the characteristic groups associated with explosive properties
Interpretation of results:
non explosive
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The substance is considered to not possess explosive properties and it is concluded that Biphenyl-4,4’-diol is unlikely to undergo rapid decomposition with the production of gases or release of heat sufficient to cause damage to the surroundings, and therefore does not present a risk of explosion
Executive summary:

Examination of the chemical structure of the substance indicates it does not contain any of the characteristic groups associated with explosive properties, and therefore, calculation of the oxygen balance is not relevant for this substance.

 

According to the information notified to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) Classification and Labelling Inventory database,Biphenyl-4,4’-diol is not classified for explosive or oxidising properties. It can be predicted that the substance does not possess explosive properties.
