Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
Type of information:
other: expert statement based on evaluation of chemical structure
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
Between 07 January 2009 and 17 April 2009.
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Study conducted in compliance with agreed protocols, with no or minor deviations from standard test guidelines and/or minor methodological deficiencies, which do not affect the quality of the relevant results.
Reference:
Composition 0
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.14 (Explosive properties)
Deviations:
no
Principles of method if other than guideline:
No test was performed. Instead, the chemical structures of the constituents were assessed for the presence of chemical groups that imply explosive properties.
GLP compliance:
no
Test material information:
Composition 1
Parameter:
other: More sensitive to shock than m-dinitrobenzene
Remarks on result:
not measured/tested
Parameter:
other: More sensitive to friction than m-dinitrobenzene
Remarks on result:
not measured/tested
Parameter:
other: Explosive under influence of flame
Remarks on result:
not measured/tested
Parameter:
other: Assessment of the chemical structure
Remarks on result:
other: not explosive based on the chemical structure

Based on the chemical structure of both components of the test material the result for the explosive properties has been predicted negative.

Interpretation of results:
other: CLP criteria not met
Remarks:
EU criteria according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008
Conclusions:
Based on the assessment of the chemical structures of both components of the test material the result for the explosive properties has been predicted negative.
Executive summary:

Explosive Properties: Based on the chemical structures of the components of the test material, the test material has been predicted to be non-explosive, using Method A.14 Explosive Properties of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

Description of key information

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Column 2 of Annex VII, Section 7.11, a test was not conducted and an assessment of the chemical structure performed instead. The substance was assessed to be non explosive.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

There are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule, hence the explosive properties of the substance were predicted negative.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on explosive properties of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification: Based on chemical structure of the constituents of the substance it is regarded non explosive.
