Reference
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Guideline experimental study, available as an unpublished report, reliable without restrictions
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
UN Manual of Tests and Criteria: Test N.1 (Test method for readily combustible solids)
GLP compliance:
no
Test procedure:
burning rate test: preliminary screening test
Remarks on result:
other: The sample could not be ignited with the gas burner (burning time 2 min) at the preliminary test.

Differential-scanning-calorimetry (DSC)

 Trial No.  Sample mass (mg)  Extrapolated ONSET-temperature (°C)  Heat of decomposition (J/g)
 1  4.67 405  335
 2  4.90  417  398
Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Potassium tetrachloroplatinate does not fulfil the criteria of Class 4.1 "Flammable Solids" of UN-TDG and the Hazard Class "Flammable solids" of the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (GHS/CLP) because it could not be ignited at the preliminary screening test.
Executive summary:

Potassium tetrachloroplatinate was assessed for flammability following the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria fifth Edition (2009) and Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP-/GHS-regulation).

Potassium tetrachloroplatinate does not fulfil the criteria of Class 4.1 "Flammable Solids" of UN-TDG and the Hazard Class "Flammable solids" of the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (GHS/CLP) because it could not be ignited at the preliminary screening test.

The study is an unpublished, guideline study that is reliable without restrictions.

Description of key information

Dipotassium tetrachloroplatinate does not fulfil the criteria of Class 4.1 "Flammable solids" of UN-TDG and the Hazard Class "Flammable Solids" of the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (GHS/CLP) because it could not be ignited at the preliminary screening test.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Michael-Schulz (2015) study is an unpublished study following UN method N1 and is considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint.

Dipotassium tetrachloroplatinate does not fulfil the criteria of Class 4.1 "Flammable solids" of the UN-TDG and the Hazard Class "Flammable solids" of the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (GHS/CLP) because it could not be ignited in the preliminary screening test.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on experimental data following a standard test guideline, dipotassium tetrachloroplatinate is not classified as a flammable solid as it could not be ignited in the preliminary screening test.
