Description of key information

Considering the structural environment of oxygen in the molecule, 2,3-Epoxypropanol (Glycid)contains oxygen chemically bonded only to carbon, and any chemical groups associated with oxidising properties and the oxygen balance of 2,3-Epoxypropanol (Glycid), it can be concluded that 2,3-Epoxypropanol (Glycid) is unlikely to be an oxidizer and will be incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials. Therefore, glycid does not need to be tested experimentally for oxidizing properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

Considering the structural environment of oxygen in the molecule, 2,3-Epoxypropanol (Glycid)contains oxygen chemically bonded only to carbon, and any chemical groups associated with oxidising properties and the oxygen balance of 2,3-Epoxypropanol (Glycid), it can be concluded that 2,3-Epoxypropanol (Glycid) is unlikely to be an oxidizer and will be incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials.

Therefore, glycid does not need to be tested experimentally for oxidizing properties.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance has no oxidising properties.The test material is not classified according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 or Directive 67/548/EEC.
