Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The structural formula (see page 9) of the test item contains none of the functional groups quoted in Manual of Tests and Criteria (fourth revised edition, appendix 6, table A 6.1) or Bretherick’s – Handbook (6th Edition, Volume 2, p 128 ff) which may indicate explosive properties. Therefore, it can be concluded by expert judgement that ‘Ethane-1,2-diol, propoxylated' is not explosive. The determination according to EC Guideline A 14 is not necessary (Currenta, 2009).
