Description of key information

The test item has no danger of explosion.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non explosive

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 (Specific rules for adaptation from column 1) of REGULATION (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH), 7.11 (Explosive properties), a study does not need to be conducted if there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule. The substance is a sorbitolester of caprylic acid and thus does not contain any groups associated with explosive properties. The test item has no danger of explosion according to the explosive properties in the sense of the European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008, A.14. Therefore the testing of explosive properties was not necessary.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The structural formula does not contain reactive groups associated with explosiveness.

Based on the structure of the molecule and taking into account the provisions laid down in Council Directive 67/548/EEC and CLP (GHS), Sorbitanmonocaprylate does not have to be classified with respect to explosiveness.
