Executive summary:

In a study (CRTL, 2006), the determination of explosion properties of Paradimethoxybenzene was performed using thermal sensitivity test apparatus, shock test apparatus, and friction test apparatus in accordance with EEC Directive 92/69 Appendix V part A14.

Paradimethoxybenzene has been determined not to have shock sensitivity to explosion, not to have friction sensitivity to explosion, and not to have thermal sensitivity to explosion.

In these conditions, Paradimethoxybenzene does not present a danger of explosion under the conditions of the test.

Description of key information

Only one study (CRTL, 2006, A14, GLP) was selected as key study.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Paradimethoxybenzene has been determined not to have shock sensitivity to explosion, nor to have friction sensitivity to explosion, and neither to have thermal sensitivity to explosion.
