Description of key information

Oleic-acid based IQAC, DMS quaternised has no pyrophoric properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Oleic-acid based IQAC, DMS quaternised did not ignite when exposed to an ignition source. The substance showed neither pyrophoric properties nor the potential to form flammable gases when in contact with water or humid air. The appraisal of the molecular structure indicates no risk with respect to pyrophoric properties or the potential of evolving flammable gases in contact with water or humid air. In addition, during the conduction of other tests (e.g. water solubility) the test item did not show any spontaneous ignition or formation of flammable gases

Justification for classification or non-classification

Oleic-acid based IQAC, DMS quaternised has no pyrophoric properties. The substance does not ignite when exposed to an ignition source. The substance showed neither pyrophoric properties nor the potential to form flammable gases when in contact with water or humid air. The appraisal of the molecular structure indicates no risk with respect to pyrophoric properties or the potential of evolving flammable gases in contact with water or humid air. In addition, during the conduction of other tests (e. g. water solubility) the test item did not show any spontaneous ignition or formation of flammable gases. Therefore the substance does not need to be classified for this endpoint.

The flash point of 186.5 ±1°C at 1013 hPa confirms no need for classification as flammable substance.
