Endpoint:
oxidising liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
May 2010
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: The EU method was followed. Based on the molecular structure and composition of the test substance a statement rather than a full study was considered sufficient to cover this endpoint.
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to
Guideline:
EU Method A.21 (Oxidising Properties (Liquids))
Principles of method if other than guideline:
REACH guidance with regards to oxidising properties was applied: A study does not need to be conducted if:• the substance is explosive; or• the substance is highly flammable; or• the substance is an organic peroxide; or• the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials, for example on the basis of thechemical structure (e.g. organic substances not containing oxygen or halogen atoms and these elements are notchemically bonded to nitrogen or oxygen, or inorganic substances not containing oxygen or halogen atoms).A full test does not need to be conducted for solids if any preliminary evaluation clearly indicates that the testsubstance has oxidising properties.For organic substances only, an Oxygen Balance (OB) calculation may be useful as a criteria combined with an examinationof the chemical structure as a means of predicting oxidizing properties. The oxygen balance is calculated from the empiricalformula of a compound in percentage of oxygen required for complete conversion of carbon to carbon dioxide, hydrogen towater, and metal to metal oxide.

OVERALL SUMMARY

Substance Name: Decanoic acid, mixed esters with heptanoic acid, octanoic acid and trimethylolpropane

CAS No: 68130 -53 -0

EINECS / ELINCS No: 268 -596 -7

Structural Alerts: None

Oxygen Balance Value (smallest ester group): -248.15

Oxygen Balance Value (largest ester group): -268.04

Potential Oxidant? No

Interpretation of results:
other: no oxidising properties
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Based on the information and review of the oligomers evaluated, the substance is deemed not to be a potential oxidant, based on the chemical structure and oxygen balance values. It is known that where oxygen is present but the atoms are only bonded to carbon and/or hydrogen, then oxidizing properties are unlikely. Ester groups are not known for their oxidising potential, hence the UVCB mixture is not considered to be a potential oxidant based on structural grounds.

Description of key information

Based on the molecular structure and composition of the test substance a statement rather than a full study was considered sufficient to cover this endpoint. The substance has no oxidising potential.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

HATCOL 1510

As the substance is a UVCB substance, it is considered appropriate to assess the theoretical smallest and largest ester products in order to determine oxygen balance values. It is known that where oxygen is present but the atoms are only bonded to carbon and/or hydrogen, then oxidizing properties are unlikely. Ester groups are not known for their oxidising potential, hence the UVCB mixture is not considered to be a potential oxidant based on structural grounds.

Based on evaluation of structural features and oxygen balance values > -200 it was concluded that the substance has no oxidising properties.
