Description of key information

From the assessment of the chemical structure it was established that MTF, would not have explosive properties.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

An assessment of the explosive properties of MTF was conducted as part of a package of physico-chemical testing (Huntingdon Life Sciences, 2013, Study number VHJ0040). The testing was conducted in compliance with GLP, and the explosive properties assessment was performed according to EC Guideline method A14.

An assessment of the chemical structure did not indicate any functional groups associated with explosive properties, and so it was established that MTF would not have explosive properties.

Justification for classification or non-classification

As noted above, an assessment of the structure of MTF indicates that no functional groups associated with explosive properties are present; on this basis it is concluded that MTF does not meet the criteria for clasification as explosive.
