oxidising solids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
14 February - 24 June 2004
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to guideline
EU Method A.17 (Oxidising Properties (Solids))
Version / remarks:
Official Journal of the European Communities L383A volume 35, 29 December 1992
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. QA statement)
Contact with:
powdered cellulose
Key result
Sample tested:
other: all reference mixtures as specified
burning time of reaction over a distance of 200 mm
Remarks on result:
other: flame extinguishes after removing bumer

The reference mixture of cellulose and barium nitrate showed a burning rate of 163 mm over 200 mm, which equals to a burning rate of 1.22 mm/s.

Interpretation of results:
other: not classified according to REGULATION (EC) 1272/2008
The above results clearly show that the sample/cellulose mixtures could not be ignited by means of a burner. Hence, the addition of the test substance to cellulose does not enhance the burning of cellulose. The test substance has no oxidizing properties.
