Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: REACH guidance on QSARs R.6, Mai 2008
Principles of method if other than guideline:
(a) The assessment of reactive groups in the molecule was performed according to the data and principles described comprehensively in the literature (Bretherick, 2007).
(b) Calculations of thermodynamic properties of the active substance were estimated using Benson’s method of group additivity. For this purpose, the computer programme CHETAH (8.0) was utilised (ASTM, 2005).

Any other information on results incl. tables

Structural aspects:

Initially, it can be stated that the test item does not contain any typically reactive structural groups that would indicate a tendency of violent decomposition.

Maximum heat of Decomposition:

Test item: -371 cal/g

This is a measure of the energy to be released from the material itself, and has been shown to be highly correlated with the tendency of a material to deflagrate or detonate. A high rating is assigned by CHETAH if the calculated maximum enthalpy of decomposition is more exothermic than 700 cal/g (2929 J/g):

Difference between Heat of Combustion and Heat of Decomposition:

Test item: -7791 cal/g

The heat of combustion for the test item was calculated at -8162 cal/g. Since the heat of decomposition is much lower (see above), this can be seen as an indication of a low tendency to be explosive.

Oxygen Balance:

Test item: -262.5 %

A compound with exactly the amount of oxygen required for total combustion has an oxygen balance of 100 %. Thus, a compound with a negative oxygen balance is oxygen deficient. Experience has shown that this value is primarily of relevance for compounds consisting of C, H, N and O.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: no oxidising properties
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The test item does not contain any structural groups known to be correlated with a tendency to react exothermally with combustible material. In addition, the thermodynamic calculations and the negative oxygen balance (<-200) for the test item indicate that the substance may rather be assessed as combustible than to have oxidising properties. In conclusion, structural aspects and estimated thermodynamic properties indicate that the test item must not be considered to have oxidising properties.
