Description of key information

Based on the chemical structure of the test material the result for the explosive properties has been predicted negative.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Under Column 2 “SPECIFIC RULES FOR ADAPTATION FROM COLUMN 1” in REACH Annex VII (7.11), it states the study does not need to be conducted if “there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule”. Accordingly the structure of the test item constituents were assessed for chemical groups that imply explosive properties. Examples of such groups are C-C unsaturated, C-metal, N-metal, contiguous oxygen atoms, contiguous nitrogen atoms, N-halogens, O-halogens, N-O.”

A prediction was undertaken using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A14 Explosive Properties of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

There are no structural alerts within the constituent structures that would imply explosive properties and therefore based on the chemical structure of the test item the result for the explosive properties has been predicted negative.

Justification for classification or non-classification

There are no structural alerts within the constituent structures that would imply explosive properties and therefore based on the chemical structure of the test item the result for the explosive properties has been predicted negative.

The substance is unclassified for explosive properties.
