Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.14 (Explosive properties)
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
1)The weight of the falling hammer is 5 kg and dropped from 0.8 m, however, the energy applied is the same as in the guideline, 40 J or 40 Nm. 2) In contrast to the EC guideline aluminium foil is used to pack the substance. 3) Ten tests are performed.
GLP compliance:
not specified

Test material

Reference
Name:
Unnamed
Type:
Constituent
Test material form:
solid: particulate/powder
Details on test material:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): JNJ-38940642-AAA (T003010)
- Physical state: solid
- Appearance: white powder

Results and discussion

Small-scale preliminary tests
Parameter:
sensitiveness to impact: impact energy (J)
Remarks on result:
negative (not further specified)
Remarks:
If all tests according to Lütolf method are negative, powder can be considered not shock sensitive as reference substance meta-dinitrobenzene is not shock sensitive in similar conditions (although not tested simultaneously in this study).

Any other information on results incl. tables

10 times negative. Not shock sensitive (sensitivity> 39.2 Nm)

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The test substance is not shock sensitive.
