Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with oxidising properties and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Justification for type of information:
Structural considerations predict that the test substance will have reducing properties. The substance is a chloroaniline. The low oxidation of nitrogen in the amine groups (-3) mean they can take up oxygen to form nitro groups with an oxidation state of +3. Conversely the reference barium nitrate molecule contains six hydrogen atoms, has a high oxidation state and will readilly release its oxygen/take up hydrogen. Chloroanilines are generally considered to be not oxidising.

Description of key information

not oxidising

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
non oxidising

Additional information

On the basis of the chemical structure the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials. Structure consideration, taking into account the EEC Method A.17 (1984), leads to a conclusion that the substance has reducing properties. Chloroanilines are considered to be not oxidising.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on oxidising properties of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 or Directive 67/548/EEC, and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification:

Based on the chemical structure the substance is not oxidising.
