non explosive

Additional information

According to the REACH Regulation Annex VII Column 2, the study does not need to be conducted when the organic substance or a homogenous mixture of organic substances contains chemical groups associated with explosive properties, but the exothermic decomposition energy is less than 500 J/g and the onset of exothermic decomposition is below 500 °C.

The test substance has an exothermic decomposition energy less than 500 J/g and the onset is below 500 °C, therefore the test doesn't need to be conducted.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008), 2.1.4.2. Screening procedure section, the screening procedure is aimed at identifying the presence of such reactive groups and the potential for rapid energy release. If the screening procedure identifies the substance or mixture to be a potential explosive, the acceptance procedure (section 10.3 of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria) has to be performed.

Screening procedure failed to evidence any reason for concern, on the basis that the substance has an exothermic decomposition energy less than 500 J/g and the onset of exothermic decomposition is below 500 °C, therefore the test doesn't need to be conducted.

In conclusion, substance does not meet the criteria to be classified as explosive according to the CLP Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008.
