Description of key information

Examination of the structure reveals that ethyl 3-ethoxypropionate has no functional and chemical groups associated with oxidizing properties. With the absence of structural alerts, classification for oxidizing properties is not required. Ethyl 3-ethoxypropionate has no oxidizing character.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

Examination of the structure reveals that ethyl 3-ethoxypropionate has no functional and chemical groups associated with oxidizing properties. With the absence of structural alerts, classification for oxidizing properties is not required. Ethyl 3-ethoxypropionate has no oxidizing character.

Ethyl 3-ethoxypropionate contains oxygen and this element is chemically bonded only to carbon or hydrogen. Therefore the classification procedure using experimental testing need not be applied. In addition it can be stated that the oxygen balance of ethyl 3-ethoxypropionate is negative. In principle this means, that there is a surplus of carbon atoms for a complete reaction.

Justification for classification or non-classification
