Endpoint:
explosiveness, other
Type of information:
calculation (if not (Q)SAR)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
19/12/2017
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
study well documented, meets generally accepted scientific principles, acceptable for assessment
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: Scientific evaluation based on structure and oxygen balance
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The oxygen balance is calculated from the emperical formula of the substance in percentage of oxygen required for complete conversion of carbon to cabron dioxide, hydrogen to water and metal to metal oxide. A structural evaluation determines the explosiveness potential on the presence or absence of known molecular groups which have explosive properties.
GLP compliance:
no

other: ISO 9001
Specific details on test material used for the study:
No further details required.

Substances that are explosive contain molecular groups which have explosive properties. Examples include:
• Nitro compounds
• Nitric Esters
• Nitramines
• Derivatives of chloric and perchloric acids
• Azides
• Acetylides
• Fulminates
• Ozinides
• Peroxides
• Nitrogen rich compounds – e.g.tetrazene.

The substance contains none of these groups.

The oxygen balance value of the substance was calculated to be -182.80.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Based on the information and review of the substance, PXDC, is deemed not to be potentially explosive.
Although the substance has an oxygen balance of > -200, the chemical structure contains no alerts for explosive potential. On this basis, the substance is predicted to be not explosive.
Executive summary:

Calculation based on structure and oxygen balance was carried out.

Based on the information and review of the substance, PXDC, is deemed not to be potentially explosive. 
Although the substance has an oxygen balance of > -200, the chemical structure contains no alerts for explosive potential.
 On this basis, the substance is predicted to be not explosive.

Description of key information

The substance is predicted to be not explosive.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Calculation based on structure and oxygen balance was carried out.

Based on the information and review of the substance, PXDC, is deemed not to be potentially explosive. 
Although the substance has an oxygen balance of > -200, the chemical structure contains no alerts for explosive potential.
 On this basis, the substance is predicted to be not explosive.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance is predicted to be not explosive, so therefore is not classified under CLP criteria as it does not fulfill the requirements for classification.
