Endpoint:

Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
Start date of the experimental work: 1 February 2018 and completion date of the experimental work: 8 May 2018
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
no guideline required
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Experimental techniques are available for the classification of a substance or preparation as explosive. These are described in EC Test A14. However, according to the OECD testing methods publication, test A14 need not be carried out when examination of the structural formula establishes beyond reasonable doubt that the substance has no explosive properties (i.e. it is not capable of rapid gas or heat release).
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)

Result:
other: Examination based on the structural formula
Remarks on result:
not measured/tested
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Examination of the structural formula for the sample indicates:
- There are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties.
- The oxygen is not bound in energetic functional groups – it is bound in CO groups which do not possess explosive behaviour. The oxygen balance is -186.
Since there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties, it is beyond reasonable doubt that the material will not exhibit explosive properties. The conduct of the A14 tests is therefore not considered appropriate.

Description of key information

Examination of the structural formula for the sample indicates:

- There are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties.

- The oxygen is not bound in energetic functional groups – it is bound in CO groups which do not possess explosive behaviour. The oxygen balance is -186.

Since there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties, it is beyond reasonable doubt that the material will not exhibit explosive properties. The conduct of the A14 tests is therefore not considered appropriate.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
