General Information

Implementation:
EU
Type of classification:
self-classification
Remarks:

This section describes the self-classification of the Resin Oils and Cyclic Dienes category (LOA CAT L) - Sub-group 2 (Intermediate Bicyclic olefin content, <15% indene and non-benzene aromatic).

The classification is derived from the substances: DCPD, 2 -Methylstyrene, Indene, Naphthalene, 1,2,4 -Trimethylbenzene, Styrene and 1,3,5 - Trimethylbenzene.

The analytical data for the Resin Oils and Cyclic Dienes category (LOA CAT L) show that there is a clear grouping of structures, substances, and concentrations within the category which are relatively consistent, and which are helpful to identify substances which will have similar biological activity. Reviewing the data there appear to be the following subgroups within the category members and which suggests the subgroups as follow:

-Sub-group 1 - High Bicyclic olefin content with low to medium aromatics content

-Sub-group 2 - Intermediate Bicyclic olefin content, <15% indene and non-benzene aromatics

-Sub-group 3 - Moderate High Bicyclic olefin content (≤ 25%), high styrene content (>15% w/w) and non-benzene aromatics

-Sub-group 4 - High Aromatic Cyclic Olefins diolefins and alkanes - Indene content (70% w/w)
