Any other information on results incl. tables

The copper to nitrogen bonds in the chemical structure indicate possible explosive properties for the test material. However, this is unlikely due to the relatively large size of the rest of the test material chemical structure. In addition, the nature of the thermograms produced by differential scanning calorimetry in a general physico-chemical properties study show an absence of any sharp exotherms; this is further evidence indicating that explosive properties for the test material are unlikely.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Based on the chemical structure and the differential scanning calorimetric thermograms of the test material the result for the explosive properties has been predicted negative.
Executive summary:

In a determination of hazardous physico-chemical properties study (Harlan project number: 0959/0225) the explosive properties for test material have been predicted negative.

The copper to nitrogen bonds in the chemical structure indicate possible explosive properties for the test material. However, this is unlikely due to the relatively large size of the rest of the test material chemical structure. In addition, the nature of the thermograms produced by differential scanning calorimetry in a general physico-chemical properties study show an absence of any sharp exotherms; this is further evidence indicating that explosive properties for the test material are unlikely.

The explosive properties were predicted using Method A14 Explosive Properties of Council Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008, Part A: Methods for the determination of physico-chemical properties.
