Description of key information

Based on the molecular structure of its constituents, The substance is not considered to have oxidizing properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

The oxidising properties of the substance were predicted based on the molecular structure of its individual constituents, in accordance with ECHA guidance Chapter R.7a, Section R.7.1.13.3. NPEO is not considered to have functionality or chemical groups associated with oxidising properties or that could imply oxidising properties.

According to Appendix 6 of the United Nations’ Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria (Fourth Revised ed., 2003) a classification procedure for oxidizing properties need not be applied if:

a) The compound does not contain oxygen, fluorine or chlorine; or

b) The compound contains oxygen, fluorine or chlorine and these elements are chemically bonded only to carbon or hydrogen.

NPEO contains oxygen and this element is chemically bonded to only carbon and hydrogen. The classification procedures for oxidizing properties need not to be applied for the substance according to the above mentioned UN-recommendations because one of the assessment criteria is met.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the molecular structure of its constituents, the substance is not considered to have oxidizing properties and therefore does not require classification for this endpoint according to according to CLP (EC 1272/2008) or DSD (67/548/EEC) criteria.
