other: No chemical alert structures for explosive properties being present in the molecule
Key result
Parameter:
other: Oxygen Balance
Value:
-59.14
Remarks on result:
other: Higher than the trigger value of -200.
Key result
Parameter:
other: Determination of the exothermic decomposition energy
Remarks on result:
other: No exothermic peaks up to 350 °C with no exothermic energy release. Energy release is below a critical trigger level of 500 J/g

Screening evaluation

analysis of the chemical structure reveals no chemical alert structures for explosive properties being present in the molecule. The calculated chemical oxygen balance is above the trigger value of -200, but the determination of the exothermic decomposition energy demonstrated an energy release far below the critical value of 500 J/g.

Determination of the exothermic decomposition energy

The curve displays no exothermic peaks up to 350 °C with no exothermic energy release. As a result, energy release is below a critical trigger level of 500 J/g and the onset of energy release is below 500 °C.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The substance is judged to harvest no explosive properties.
Executive summary:

Analysis of the chemical structure reveals no chemical alert structures for explosive properties being present in the molecule. The calculated chemical oxygen balance is above the trigger value of -200, but the determination of the exothermic decomposition energy demonstrated an energy release far below the critical value of 500 J/g. Therefore, the substance is considered to be non-explosive according to Directive 67/548/EEC and Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 and no further testing is required.

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Reactive Blue 072 is judged to be not explosive, hence it does not warrant classification as per the Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
