Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
26 September 2017 to ****
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.14 (Explosive properties)
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Physical state: Dark amber liquid
Purity: >93 %
Key result
Parameter:
other: The chemical structure of test substance was checked for the presence of groups associated with explosive properties and a sample was analysed via Differential Scanning Calorimetry
Remarks on result:
other: The structure does not have any explosophores associated with its structure. Due to lack of oxygen in the chemical structure, an oxygen balance was not relevant.
Remarks:
The DSC analysis gave an exotherm, from 401 to 471°C with an energy of decomposition of 308.38 J/g, which is less than the 500 J/g above which the explosive potential exists.
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The test material does not exhibit explosive properties.
Executive summary:

In a study performed to the standardised guideline EU Test Method A.14., under GLP conditions; the DSC analysis gave an exotherm, from 401 to 471°C with an energy of decomposition of 308.38 J/g, which is less than the 500 J/g above which the explosive potential exists. Due to lack of oxygen in the chemical structure, an oxygen balance was not relevant. The structure does not have any explosophores associated with its structure. The test substance was not considered to have explosive properties, Smithers Viscient (ESG) Ltd. (2018).
