Description of key information

A waiver argument is presented to justify that an oxidising properties is not required for N-(n-octyl)-2-pyrrolidinone

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:

Additional information

The electronegative atoms within N-(n-octyl)-2-pyrrolidinone are both bonded to carbon atoms. The compound does not contain any of the groups listed as oxidising according to the literature, and thus oxidising properties are unlikely. The oxygen balance is negative (-297.7%), which indicates that this substance has an oxygen deficit.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Not classified as N-(n-octyl)-2 -pyrrolidinone is determined to be non-oxidising.
