Key result
Parameter:
other: Explosive (not specified)
Remarks on result:
negative (not further specified)

Bond groupings known to confer explosive properties are classed as plosophores and explosive enhancing groups as auxoploses. These are typically C-C unsaturated, C-metal, contiguous nitrogen atoms, contiguous oxygen atoms, N-O, N-halogens, O-halogens etc. The groupings are fully documented and described in Bretherick's Handbook of Reactive Chemical Hazards.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Fatty acids, C12-20 and C12-20-unsatd., 2-ethylhexyl esters main components have substantial negative oxygen balance, which is below the value of concern, and none of the structural features associated with explosive properties. It is concluded that Fatty acids, C12-20 and C12-20-unsatd. is unlikely to undergo rapid decomposition with the evolution of gases or release of heat and does not present a risk of explosion.
Executive summary:

An expert review of the composition and properties of this product was conducted, which is an acceptable approach to address the requirements of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.

Fatty acids, C12-20 and C12-20-unsatd., 2-ethylhexyl esters main components have substantial negative oxygen balance, which is below the value of concern, and none of the structural features associated with explosive properties. It is concluded that Fatty acids, C12-20 and C12-20-unsatd. is unlikely to undergo rapid decomposition with the evolution of gases or release of heat and does not present a risk of explosion.
