UN Test method C.1 as described in the `Manual of Tests and Criteria¿ (part III, sub-section 37.4) is applicable only to substances and mixtures in the liquid state. The test substance is a solid. Therefore, the test criteria of metal corrosion do not apply.

Conclusions:
Androst-4-ene-3,17-dione is stable since it shows no self-reactive or self-heating properties, there are no exothermic reactions up to 400 °C and it is not corrosive to metals.
Executive summary:

Androst-4-ene-3,17-dione is stable since it shows no self-reactive (screening DTA) or self-heating (UN N.4) properties, there are no exothermic reactions up to 400 °C (screening DTA) and it is not corrosive to metals (UN 37.4).

Description of key information

The substance is stable since it shows no self-reactive or self-heating properties, there are no exothermic reactions up to 400 °C and since the test substance is a solid, the criteria of metal corrosion do not apply.

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance does not need to be classified since it is stable and does not have corrosive properties.
