explosive properties of explosives
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 explosive properties

Description of key information

The substance is not explosive

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non explosive

Additional information

The potential for the substance to exhibit explosive properties was assessed by structural examination. Hydrocarbons, C14-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes < 2% aromatics does not contain any functional groups that may indicate this hazard. Therefore, it can be concluded that this substance is not explosive and the requirement to conduct an experiment according to EU Method A .14 is considered not necessary.

Justification for classification or non-classification

There is no evidence to suggest that the substance should be classified for this endpoint.
