Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Key result
Sample tested:
other: Oxidising properties - expert statement
other: expert statement
Remarks on result:
other: The test item is not considered to be oxidising

Examining the structural formula, the following observations can be made:

- The molecule does not contain any functional groups such as organic nitro compounds, N-Halogen Compounds (N-X), Oxohalogen compounds, Interhalogen compounds

- The proportion of electronegative atoms in the structure of the substance is low (1 oxygen atom out of an overall atom count of 38). The oxygen atom is bound to carbon atoms.

- In the case of this substance, the highly electronegative atom is not bound to any other electronegative elements.

Assessment of the above observations indicates strongly that the molecule will not have oxidising properties.

On the basis of this exercise, the material should be considered as not oxidising and should not be subjected to experimental testing. The material meets all criteria for exemption from testing and has a structure not at all conducive with that required to exhibit oxidising tendencies.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
The substance is concluded not to have oxidising properties. The substance meets all criteria for exemption from testing and has a structure not at all conducive with that required to exhibit oxidising tendencies.

Description of key information

The substance was concluded from a GLP study not to have oxidising properties following a theoretical assessment of the chemical structure (Younis S, 2012).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
non oxidising

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance does not need to be classified as an oxidising substance as based on the chemical structure the substance does not contain any chemical groups indicating oxidising properties.
