Administrative data

oxidising liquids
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 oxidising properties and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied

Data source

Materials and methods

Test material

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:
other: no oxidising properties
Migrated information
From the structural formula of Folenox, it can be concluded that the substance is not an oxidising substance. The substance does not have the functional groups associated with oxidising properties. The oxygen present in the molecule is linked to carbon and hydrogen atoms only. Therefore it can be concluded beyond reasonable doubt that Folenox is incapable of causing fire or enhance the risk of fire when in contact with combustible material. As such further testing is not needed.
