Parameter:
thermal sensitivity - Koenen test: diameter of the orifice plate
Remarks on result:
not measured/tested

Screening evaluation

Analysis of the molecular structure revealed, that no such chemical alert structures are present in the molecule.

Calculation of the oxygen balance according to the above mentioned formula is -233.66 and therefore lower than the trigger value of -200.

Determination of the exothermic decomposition energy

During the determination of exothermic decomposition energy, a curve displaying no exothermic peaks up to 350 °C with no exothermic energy release was seen.  

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Solvent Yellow 163 is considered to be non-explosive according to Directive 67/548/EEC and Regulation (EC) 1272/2008.
Executive summary:

No experimental test data according to EU Method A.14 or comparable methods for Solvent Yellow 163 are available. However, analysis of the chemical structure revealed no alerts for explosive properties. The calculated chemical oxygen balance is below the trigger value of -200 and the determination of the exothermic decomposition energy demonstrated no energy release up to a temperature of 340 °C. Therefore, the substance is considered to be non-explosive according to Directive 67/548/EEC and Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 and no further testing is required.

non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

As the substance is considered to be non-explosive according to Directive 67/548/EEC and Regulation (EC) 1272/2008, no classification is warranted.
