Administrative data

Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
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

Data source

Materials and methods

Test material

Reference
Name:
Unnamed
Type:
Constituent
Type:
impurity
Test material form:
liquid
Details on test material:
- Name of test material (as cited in the expert statement): Folenox
- Chemical name: 4,4,8,8-Tetramethyloctahydro-4a,7-methanonaphtho[1,8a-b]oxirene (IUPAC)
- Empirical formula: C15H24O
- Structural formula: See IUCLID section 1

Results and discussion

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non explosive
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
From the structural formula of Folenox, it can be concluded that the substance is not explosive. The substance does not have the functional groups associated with explosive properties or chemical instability. Therefore it can be concluded beyond reasonable doubt that Folenox is incapable of causing explosions by action of external heating sources. As such further testing is not needed.
