Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 (Specific rules for adaptation from column 1) of REGULATION (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH), 7.11 (Explosive properties), a study does not need to be conducted if there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule. The substance is the sodium salt of an ester of 4-hydroxy benzoic acid and thus does not contain any groups associated with explosive properties. The test item has no danger of explosion according to the explosive properties in the sense of the European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008, A.14. Therefore the testing of explosive properties was not necessary.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The structural formula does not contain reactive groups associated with explosiveness.

Based on the structure of the molecule and taking into account the provisions laid down in Council Directive 67/548/EEC and CLP (GHS) , Sodium methyl 4-hydroxybenzoate does not have to be classified with respect to explosiveness.
