Test series:
other: Structural assessment
Method:
other: Structural assessment
Parameter:
other: Not applicable for structural assessment
Result:
result is considered "-" (negative)
Remarks:
Based on structural assessment
Remarks on result:
not measured/tested
Remarks:
Based on structural assessment

An examination of the structure of the test material reveals that it contains no groups which are known to be associated with explosive properties. Therefore the oxygen balance of the test material is not required

The structural examination of the test material suggests it is not likely to possess explosive properties.

Interpretation of results:
other: Not likely to possess explosive properties
Conclusions:
The structural examination of the test material suggests it is not likely to possess explosive properties.
Executive summary:

A substance may be explosive if its molecules contain bond groupings which confer upon them explosive properties. If the substance contains one or more of the groups directly associated with the explosive property, then further evaluation is required.

An examination of the structure of the test material reveals that it contains no groups which are known to be associated with explosive properties. Therefore the oxygen balance of the test material is not required

The structural examination of the test material suggests it is not likely to possess explosive properties.

Description of key information

In accordance with Section 7.11 of Column 2 of Annex VII of the REACH Regulation, it is considered justified to omit the explosivity testing on the grounds that, from the compositional description and the structural formula of the substance, it can be concluded that the substance does not exhibit explosive properties as there are no functional groups associated with explosive properties or tendencies present. Thus, this substance should not be classified as dangerous according to the criteria for explosivity, which is furthermore confirmed by long term experience in the handling and use of the substance.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the compositional description and the structural formula of the substance it can be concluded that there are no functional groups associated with explosive properties or tendencies that would indicate that this substance will manifest explosive properties. As such it is considered justified not to classify the substance with regards to potential explosive properties.
