Description of key information

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

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

Under COLUMN 2 “SPECIFIC RULES FOR ADAPTATION FROM COLUMN 1” in REACH Annex VII (7.13), it states the study does not need to be conducted if "the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials, for example on the basis of the chemical structure”. Accordingly the structure of the test item constituents were assessed for chemical groups that would imply oxidising properties. Examples of such groups are nitrates, metal oxides, hypofluorites, difluoroaminopolynitroaryls, perchlorates, bromates and iodites.

A prediction was undertaken using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A17 Oxidising Properties (Solids) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

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

Justification for classification or non-classification

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

The substance is unclassified for explosive properties.
