Description of key information

The structural formula (see page 6) contains none of the functional groups quoted in ‘Manual of Tests and Criteria’ (fourth revised edition, appendix 6, article 6) which may indicate oxidizing properties. Therefore, it can be concluded by expert judgement that ‘Ethane-1,2-diol, propoxylated’ has no oxidizing properties. The determination according to EC Guideline A 21 is not necessary.

With application of EC-Guideline 1272/2008 (‘Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals - GHS‘ Annex 1, article 2.13) the criteria for classification ‘Ethane-1,2-diol, propoxylated’ as ‘oxidizing liquid’ are not fulfilled (Currenta, 2009).
