Description of key information

Classification based on the molecular structure.
General Physical Chemistry, Schering AG, Berlin. Study report NC54EY10 (APC 80/99), dated 1999-09-27.
The molecular structure of Hydroxydrospirenone contains no functional groups with intrinsinc oxidising properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:

Additional information

The test ‘oxidising properties’ according to the EU-Guideline A.17 of Hydroxydrospirenone was not performed, since Hydroxydrospirenone carries only four oxygen containing functional groups (one as hydroxy group, one as carbonyl group and two as cyclic ester, i. e. lactone). None of these functional groups possesses oxidising properties.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Hydroxydrospirenone is classified as non-oxidising, because its molecular structure contains no functional groups with intrinsic oxidising properties.
