Additional information

The screening evaluation failed to evidence any reason of concern, on the basis of chemical structure, oxygen balance and thermal behaviour.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC N. 1272/2008) 2.1.4.2 Explosive properties are associated with the presence of certain chemical groups in a molecule which can react to produce very rapid increases in temperature or pressure. 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 (see section 10.3 of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria) has to be performed.

The screening procedure failed to evidence any reason for concern on the basis of chemical structure, oxygen balance and thermal behaviour.

In conclusion, the substance does not meet the criteria to be classified as explosive, according to the CLP Regulation (EC N.1272/2008).
