Description of key information

Dipropylene glycol methyl ether is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII, the study does not need to be conducted if the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials. Dipropylene glycol methyl ether is a saturated glycol ether with no functional and chemical groups associated with oxidizing properties. With the absence of structural alerts, classification for oxidizing properties is not required. Dipropylene glycol methyl ether has no oxidising character.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Dipropylene glycol methyl ether is a saturated glycol ether with no functional and chemical groups associated with oxidizing properties. Dipropylene glycol methyl ether is an aprotic and chemically inert solvent. With the absence of structural alerts classification for oxidising properties is not required.
