Endpoint:
flammable gases
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
weight of evidence
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: peer-reviewed handbooks
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: no data
Deviations:
not specified
GLP compliance:
not specified
Parameter:
lower explosion limit
Value:
3 % (not further specified)
Remarks on result:
other: in air
Parameter:
upper explosion limit
Value:
18 % (not further specified)
Remarks on result:
other: in air
Interpretation of results:
flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information determined on basis of the flashpoint in combination with the boiling point
Conclusions:
- explosive limits [vol% in air]: 3 - 18
- the molecular structure of dimethyl carbonate does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties and handling of the substance indicates that this is the case (expert statement by applicant)

- the molecular structure of allyl alcohol does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties and handling of the substance indicates that this is the case (expert statement by applicant)

Description of key information

1) Explosive limits [vol% in air]: 3 - 18 (CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, 2005)
2) Explosive limits [vol% in air]: 2.5 - 18 (Lange's Handbook of Chemistry, 1999)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
flammable

Additional information

Expert statement by applicant: the molecular structure of allyl alcohol does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties and handling of the substance indicates that this is the case.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Flammabilty: determined on basis of the flashpoint in combination with the boiling point.
