EC number: 240-979-3 | CAS number: 16921-30-5
Test item was fine powder but did contain some larger granules. Whole of test item was ground to a fine powder
This is a GLP compliant study following UN method O.1 and is considered suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint.
Hexachloroplatinic acid has been determined not be a Division 5.1 substance for oxidising properties, as both the 4:1 and 1:1 test item to cellulose test mixtures failed to ignite.
The 4:1 and 1:1 test item:cellulose mixtures did not ignite and burn during the 3 minutes that the power was applied. This indicates that the test item is not an oxidising solid.
Authors state that the material, length and diameter of wire met method specifications and the appropriate combination of current and voltage was used. therefore as the physical parameters of the wire and the power dissipation met the method specifications, the deviation from the electrical resistance of the wire had no effect on the test.
This is a GLP compliant study following UN method O.1, which is considered suitable for use for this endpoint.
Tetraammonium decachloro-mu-oxodiruthenate (4-) is not classified as an oxidising solid in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of 16 December 2008 on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures as the 4:1 and 1:1 test item:cellulose mixtures did not ignite and burn during the 3 minutes that the power was applied.
On the basis of read-across from other substances with co-ordinated chloride, in the 4 + oxidation state (tetraammonium decachloro-mu-oxodiruthenate and hexachloroplatinic acid), dipotassium hexachloroplatinate is not considered to be oxidising.
The oxidising properties of dipotassium hexachloroplatinate are read across from other substances with co-ordinated chloride, in the 4+ oxidation state (tetraammonium decachloro-mu-oxodiruthenate and hexachloroplatinic acid). Neither of these substances are oxidising based on GLP-compliant studies following UN method O.1 (Tremain and Atwal 2011, Walker and White 2011), there is also supplementary evidence that other metal chlorides are also not oxidizing. For example, other Group VIII transition metals such as cobalt (II) chloride, iron (II), iron(III) and nickel(II) chloride. Copper(I) chloride from the adjacent Group IB is also not classified for oxidizing properties. There is therefore no evidence that any transition metal chloride is an oxidant. Supplementary evidence also comes from the non-transition metal chlorides and there is no evidence from two centuries of industrial and academic experience that these substances are oxidants.
On the basis of read-across dipotassium hexachloroplatinate is not classified as an oxidising solid.
On the basis of read-across from other substances with co-ordinated chloride in the 4+ oxidation state, dipotassium hexachloroplatinate is not classified as an oxidising solid.
