Description of key information

The presence of certain groups in the substance K-36 may indicate explosive properties (ex: C-C unsaturation). Thus, we can´t conclude on the absence of explosive properties only on this criterion. As K-36 contains other atoms than C, H or O, the oxygen balance formula is not applicable. The information concerning exothermic reactions were obtained from a melting point test on K-36. During this test, a DSC analysis was performed. A Sampleof K-36 was charged to an aluminium DSC crucible and was ramped from 25 °C to 400 °C at 4 K.min-1 .
The result of the test shows that the exothermic decomposition energy is less than 500 J/g.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Thus it can be concluded that K-36 is not classified as an explosive according to the data available and the present screening procedure.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the low exothermic decomposition energy observed with K-36, it can be concluded that K-36 is not classified as explosive according to CLP criteria.
