Reference
Endpoint:
oxidising liquids
Type of information:
other: statement
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: The EU method was followed. Based on the molecular structure a statement rather than a full study was considered sufficient to cover this endpoint.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.21 (Oxidising Properties (Liquids))
Deviations:
not applicable
GLP compliance:
no
Key result
Sample tested:
other: theoretical evaluation of the potential of a 1:1 mixture with cellulose to show a positive result in the test described in the EC A.21 guideline
Parameter:
other: oxidizing properties
Remarks on result:
not measured/tested
Remarks:
result based on evaluation of structural features: i.e. absence of chemical groups that might act as an oxidizing agent and the fact that oxygen atoms that are present in the chemical are bonded to carbon (indicating oxygen deficiency)

Statement:

According to the EC A.21 guideline, a liquid substance is to be considered as an oxidizer when:

a)    a 1:1 mixture, by mass, of the substance and cellulose spontaneously ignites; or

b) a 1:1 mixture, by mass, of the substance and cellulose exhibits a mean pressure rise time less than or equal to the mean pressure rise time of a 1:1 mixture, by mass, of 65%(w/w) aqueous nitric acid and cellulose. 

Examination of the structure of the test substance establishes beyond reasonable doubt that the substance is incapable of showing a positive result in the test described in the EC A.21 guideline. The substance does not contain any group that might act as an oxidizing agent. The oxygen atoms that are present in the chemical are bonded to carbon, which indicates that the molecule is oxygen-deficient. The impurities, present for =< 0.3% in the test substance, were not taken into account but it is not to be expected that these have any influence.

Interpretation of results:
other: no oxidizing properties
Conclusions:
Ditetrahydrofurylpropane has no oxidizing properties.
Executive summary:

In a GLP expert statement it was concluded that the substance has no oxidizing properties as it lacks structural alerts. In accordance with Column 2 of REACH Annex VII, no oxidising properties study (required in section 7.13) was performed.
