Description of key information

Allantoin is non dust-explosive.
In accordance with column 2 (Specific rules for adaptation from column 1) of REGULATION (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH), 7.11 (Explosive properties), a study does not need to be conducted if there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule.
The substance is an imidazolidinyl substituted urea derivative does not contain any groups associated with explosive properties. The test item has no danger of explosion according to the explosive properties in the sense of the European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008, A.14. Therefore the testing of explosive properties was not necessary.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

The dust explosiveness of Allantoin was tested in an experimental study in 2002, using a screening test in a Hartmann Apparatus. As the substance could not be ignited by several types of ignition sources in the Hartmann Apparatus, it is regarded as being non dust-explosive.

In accordance with column 2 (Specific rules for adaptation from column 1) of REGULATION (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH), 7.11 (Explosive properties), a study does not need to be conducted if there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule. The substance is an imidazolidinyl substituted urea derivative does not contain any groups associated with explosive properties. The test item has no danger of explosion according to the explosive properties in the sense of the European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008, A.14. Therefore the testing of explosive properties was not necessary.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The structural formula does not contain reactive groups associated with explosiveness.

Based on the structure of the molecule and taking into account the provisions laid down in Council Directive 67/548/EEC and CLP (GHS) , the substance does not have to be classified with respect to explosiveness.
