Endpoint:
oxidising liquids
Type of information:
calculation (if not (Q)SAR)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
18 June 2010
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
study well documented, meets generally accepted scientific principles, acceptable for assessment
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria, Fourth Revised Edition
GLP compliance:
no
Key result
Sample tested:
test mixture as specified
Parameter:
other: oxidising
Remarks on result:
other: negative

No further details provided

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Considering the structural environment of oxygen in the molecule and the substantially negative oxygen balance of -223.73% of benzyl acetate (CAS: 140-11-4), it can be concluded beyond reasonable doubt that benzyl acetate (CAS: 140-11-4) is unlikely to be an oxidizer and will be incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials. Therefore it need not be tested experimentally for oxidizing properties (according toUN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria, Fourth Revised Edition).

Endpoint:
oxidising liquids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with oxidising properties and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
the study does not need to be conducted because the organic substance contains oxygen or halogen atoms which are chemically bonded only to carbon or hydrogen and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied

Description of key information

No functional groups are present within the molecule associated with oxidising properties as only carbon, hydrogen and oxygen are present, with oxygen only bonded to carbon.

Considering the structural environment of oxygen in the molecule and the substantially negative oxygen balance of -223.73% of Benzyl Acetate (CAS: 140-11-4), it can be concluded, beyond reasonable doubt, that Benzyl Acetate (CAS: 140-11-4) is unlikely to be an oxidizer and will be incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials. It need not be tested experimentally for oxidizing properties (according to UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria, Fourth Revised Edition).
