Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: internal method
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The test item sample and reference material are both maintained at the temperature predetermined by the program even during a thermal event in the sample. The amount of energy which has to be supplied to the sample to maintain zero temperature differential between the test item sample and the reference material is the experimental parameter displayed as the ordinate of the thermal analysis curve. The rate of energy absorption by the sample is proportional to the specific heat of the sample.
Any transition or reactions of the test item is accompanied by a change in specific heat produces a discontinuity in the power signal whose area is proportional to the total enthalpy change. Endothermic peaks will be characterized melting or boiling points, whereas exothermic peak will be characterized decomposition.
GLP compliance:

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
non explosive
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
During the first phase, one exothermic peak was observed at 413.5 °C. The exothermic reaction energy is less than 500 J/g and the onset of exothermic decomposition is below 500 °C, so the test item shall not be classified as explosive and the test on explosive properties with EC A14 method should not be performed.
