Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with explosive properties
GLP compliance:

Assessment of Explosive Properties of Sodium Xylenesulphonate

Examination of the structural formula indicates:

- There are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties.

- The oxygen is not bound in energetic functional groups - it is bound in -O-S-groups which do not possess explosive behaviour. The oxygen balance is -134

- above the criteria for consideration (-200).

- Thermal stability analysis has been conducted on the sample using Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). Examination of the spectra up to 500°C shows no major or significant exothermic events (i.e. there are no events with a magnitude of > 500 J/g). Based on this combination of factors, it is beyond reasonable doubt that the material will not exhibit explosive properties. There are no elements of the screening procedure which begin to suggest that explosive properties may be exhibited by the substance. The conduct of the A14 tests is therefore not considered appropriate.
