Reference
Endpoint:
relative self-ignition temperature (solids)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2011
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.16 (Relative Self-Ignition Temperature for Solids)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Remarks on result:
no self ignition observed under the test conditions

No endothermic or exothermic effect of the test substance was observed between 20°C and 170°C.

Conclusions:
No endothermic or exothermic effect of the test substance was observed between 20°C and 170°C. It demonstrates that Androst-4-ene-3,17-dione is not self-ignitable.
Executive summary:

The self-ignition temperature of Androst-4-ene-3,17-dione was determined using a temperature programmed laboratory oven, a stainless steel wire mesh cube, NiCr/NiAl thermocouples and a temperature recording device. Based on the results obtained the test substance is considered 'not self-ignitable'.

Description of key information

No endothermic or exothermic effect of the test substance was observed between 20°C and 170°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The result demonstrates that Androst-4-ene-3,17-dione is not self-ignitable.

Two studies are available for this endpoint. The GLP study with a reliability of 1 was taken as key study.
