Endpoint:
explosiveness
Type of information:
other: Expert statement
Adequacy of study:
weight of evidence
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Qualifier:
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The oxygen balance of the test substance was determined.
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Parameter:
other: Explosive (not specified)
Remarks:
migrated information
Remarks on result:
negative (not further specified)

The oxygen balance of the test substance was -136%, which is higher than -200%.The value was obtained due to the presence of a sulfonate group in the molecule structure of the test substance. These types of groups are not chemically instalbl of highly energetic. None of the components of the test substance does contain chemical groups which are associated with explosive properties.

Interpretation of results:
non explosive
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Sodium toluenesulphonate has no explosive properties.
Executive summary:

None of the components of Sodium toluenesulphonate does contain chemical groups which are associated with explosive properties.

Sodium toluenesulphonate has no explosive properties.

Description of key information

In an expert statement sodium toluenesulphonate was considered to have no explosive properties due to the oxygen balance of the molecule and a lack of chemical groups which are associated with explosive properties. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive
