Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

The oxidising potential of the registered substance was estimated via an assessment based on an examination of the molecular structure and composition of the substance. An analysis of the substance was performed to identify the presence of any structural features commonly associated with oxidising behaviour, i.e. groups that are capable of contributing to the combustion of other materials, generally by yielding oxygen. Typical oxidising agents contain functional groups such as halide-oxygen groups, nitrogen-oxygen groups and some metal-oxygen complexes. The substance does not contain chlorine or fluorine and all the oxygen atoms present are bound to carbon, hydrogen or sulphur. It is concluded that the substance does not have any oxidising potential and does not require classification as an oxidising agent.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance is considered to be not classified as oxidising as there are no structural features of the substance associated with oxidising potential.
