Reference
Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
Type of information:
other: Expert statement
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2012
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Statement prepared under GLP conditions.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.14 (Explosive properties)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): Jeffcat ZR50
- Physical state: Liquid
- Batch: PFW100207
- Composition of test material, percentage of components: contains 0.03% water
- Storage conditions: in cool, well-ventilated area
Parameter:
other: Based on structural formula
Remarks on result:
negative (not further specified)

Examination of the structural formula for the sample indicates:

- There are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties

- The oxygen is not bound in energetic functional groups - it is bound in a CO group which does not possess explosive behaviour. The oxygen balance is -276 - below the criteria for consideration (-200).

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.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The substance is concluded not to be explosive as based on the chemical structure the substance does not contain any chemically instable or highly energetic groups that might lead to an explosion. In addition, the oxygen is not bound in energetic functional groups.

Description of key information

The test substance was concluded not to have explosive properties following a theoretical assessment in a GLP study according to test method EC A.14 (Younis S, 2012).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The test substance does not need to be classified as explosive as based on the chemical structure the substance does not contain any chemically instable or highly energetic groups that might lead to an explosion.
