Screening evaluation

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

Calculation of the oxygen balance according to the above mentioned formula was -398.06 and therefore below the trigger value of -200.

Determination of the exothermic decomposition energy

The curve displayed one exothermic peak between 230 and 320 °C with an energy release of 175.96 J/g. This peak is considered to represent substance decomposition energy. As a result, energy releasewais far below a critical trigger level of 500 J/g and the onset of energy release was below 500 °C.

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

The explosion potential of the substance was evaluated according to the the screening procedure described in:

- CLP, Annex I, Part 2, paragraphs 2.1.4.2 and 2.1.4.3

- Appendix 6 of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria

- Technical Guidance Document on the Information Requirements for REACH, Part 2 EWG 1-7, REACH Implementation Project (RIP) 3.3 Phase 2, chapter 7.1.11.3

 

Analysis of the chemical structure revealed no alerts for explosive properties. The calculated chemical oxygen balance was -398.06 and hence below the trigger value of -200. Further, the determination of the exothermic decomposition energy demonstrated an energy release of of 175.96 J/g, which is far below the critical value of 500 J/g. 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 analysis of the chemical structure reveals no alerts for explosive properties. The calculated chemical oxygen balance is above the trigger value of -200, but the determination of the exothermic decomposition energy demonstrated an energy release far below the critical value of 500 J/g. 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.
