GHS

General Information

Name:
(R)-Propylene oxide
Implementation:
EU
Remarks:
Classification is based on the entry in Annex 1 for racemic methyloxirane (CAS 75-56-9, EC 200-879-2, Annex 1 Index Number 603-055-00-4). It is probable that, in the absence of data for this specific enantiomer, the chiral molecule has some or all of the properties of the racemic substance.
