Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
Type of information:
other: Desktop Asessment
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
Start date of the experimental work: 22 August 2014 and Completion date of the experimental work: 09 October 2014.
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Desktop Assessment based on the structural formula
Qualifier:
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Experimental technics are available for classification of a substance or preparation as explosive. This are described in EC A14. However, according to the OECD testing methods publication, test A14 need not to be carried out when examination of the structural formula establishes beyond reasonable doubt that the substance has no explosive properties.
GLP compliance:
no

Remarks on result:
other: examination of the structural formula establishes beyond reasonable doubt that the substance has no explosive properties.
Remarks:
No explosive properties.

Assessment of Explosive Properties of the material

Examination of the structural formula for the sample indicates:

 There are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties.

 The oxygen is not bound in energetic functional groups – it is bound in CO groups which do not possess explosive behaviour. The oxygen balance is -193 – just above the criteria for consideration (-200).

Based on this combination of factors, it is beyond reasonable doubt that the material will not exhibit explosive properties. There are no elements of the screening procedure which begin to suggest that explosive properties may be exhibited by the substance. The conduct of the A14 tests is therefore not considered appropriate.

Interpretation of results:
non explosive
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Based on this expert statement, the material will not exhibit explosive properties.
