EC number: 701-173-1
CAS number: -
Assessment of Explosive Properties of the test substance:
Examination of the structural formula indicates:
• There are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties.
• The oxygen is not bound in energetic functional groups – it is bound
in CO groups which do not possess explosive behaviour.
• Thermal stability analysis has been conducted on the sample using
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). Two exothermic events were
observed. The first from 128.8°C (-22.0 J.g-1) and the second from
239.3°C (-433.5 J.g-1). The total heat of decomposition was found to be
< 500 J/g).
Based on this combination of factors, it is beyond reasonable doubt that
the material will not exhibit explosive properties. There are no
elements of the screening procedure which begin to suggest that
explosive properties may be exhibited by the substance. The conduct of
the A14 tests is therefore not considered appropriate.
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
A sample of the test substance was charged to a gold (high pressure) DSC
crucible which was then sealted and placed in the furnace. The sample
was then ramped from 25°C to 500°C at 4 K. min-1.
The sample was observed to undergo an exothermic event from 128.8°C
which had a heat of decomposition of -22.0 J.g-1, a second exothermic
event was observed at 239.3°C which had a heat of decomposition of
-433.5 J.g-1. No further significant events were noted up to 500°C.
In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII the explosive properties
study does not need to be conducted as there are no chemical groups
associated with explosive properties present in the molecule. The
substance contains none of the functional groups quoted in
“Recommendations on the transport of dangerous goods – Manual of Tests
and Criteria” 4th revised edition, Appendix 6, table A6.1, which may
indicate explosive properties. Therefore, it can be concluded that
this substance is not explosive in the senses of EC A14 and the UN
Manual of Tests and Criteria.
