Results for screening evaluation:

Analysis of the molecular structure of the substance revealed that no such chemical alert structures are present in the molecule.

Calculation of the oxygen balance according to the above mentioned formula is -185.39 and therefore higher than the trigger value of -200.

Determination of the exothermic decomposition energy:

The curve obtained from thermal analysis, displayed two exothermic peaks with a total energy release of 355.17 J/g up to 350 °C. As a result, the energy release is below a critical trigger level of 500 J/g with the onset of energy release being below 500 °C.

Summary and Conclusion:

In summary, analysis of the chemical structure revealed no alerts for explosive properties is 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 of of 355.17 J/g up to 350 °C. 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.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The substance is considered to be non-explosive.
Executive summary:

A screening for the explosive properties of the test substance was carried out according to internationally accepted guidelines. Analysis of the chemical structure revealed no alerts for explosive properties is 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 of of 355.17 J/g up to 350 °C. 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.

Description of key information

The substance was considered to be non explosive.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

A screening for the explosive properties of the test substance was carried out according to internationally accepted guidelines. Analysis of the chemical structure revealed no alerts for explosive properties is 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 of of 355.17 J/g up to 350 °C. 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.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance was considered to be non-explosive, hence does not warrant the classification as per the CLP (Regulation EC No. 1272/2008) criteria.
