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
Sample tested:
other: based on expert judgement
Parameter:
other: study of chemical groups
Remarks on result:
other: The substance is not expected to have oxidising properties

Examining the structural formula, the following observations can be made:

- The molecule does not contain any functional groups such as organic nitro compounds, N-Halogen Compounds (N-X), Oxohalogen compounds, Interhalogen compounds.

- The proportion of highly electronegative atoms in the molecule is low (1 oxygen atom out of an overall atom count of 48). The oxygen atom is bound to a carbon atom.

- The highly electronegative atom is not bound to another highly electronegative atom, nor to any other electronegative elements.

Assessment against these criteria indicates strongly that the molecule will not have oxidising properties.

On the basis of this exercise, the material should be considered as not oxidising and should not be subjected to experimental testing. The material meets all criteria for exemption from testing and has a structure not at all conducive with that required to exhibit oxidising tendencies.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The substance is concluded not to have oxidising properties. The substance meets all criteria for exemption from testing and has a structure not at all conducive with that required to exhibit oxidising tendencies.

Description of key information

The test substance was concluded from a GLP-compliant study not to have oxidising properties following a theoretical assessment of the chemical structure (Younis S, 2012).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
non oxidising

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The test substance needs not to be classified as an oxidising substance as based on the chemical structure the substance does not contain any chemical groups indicating oxidising properties.
