Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
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 explosive properties
Conclusions:
4,4’-Dimethoxytrityl chloride does not contain chemical groups associated with explosive properties. Additionally, the oxygen balance of the molecule is –234 (which is below –200), which allows classification of a substance as non-explosive (even if chemical groups associated with explosive hazards are present in the molecule - which is not the case for 4,4’-Dimethoxytrityl chloride). Based on this screening level assessment, testing for explosive properties of the test item is considered to be scientifically unjustified. 4,4’-Dimethoxytrityl chloride is therefore not classified as an explosive substance.
Executive summary:

4,4’-Dimethoxytrityl chloride does not contain chemical groups associated with explosive properties.

Based on this screening level assessment, testing for explosive properties of the test item is considered to be scientifically unjustified. 4,4’-Dimethoxytrityl chloride is therefore not classified as an explosive substance.
