Additional information

There are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in acetonitrile. According to Annex VII, paragraph 7.11 of the regulation and the criteria for adaptation, a study for this end point is therefore not required.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Acetonitrile is classified as non-explosive. This is based on the CLP criteria (EC 1272/2008) that there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the acetonitrile molecule.
