Description of key information

Testing for explosiveness is not necessary and has not been conducted.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

From the compositional description and the structural formula given, it can be concluded that the substance does not exhibit explosive properties. There are no functional groups associated with explosive properties or tendencies that would indicate that this substance will manifest explosive properties. Similarly, the calculated oxygen balance is about -300 suggesting that testing need not be conducted. Thus, this substance should not be classified as dangerous according to the criteria for explosivity, which is furthermore confirmed by long term handling experience.
