Description of key information

Directive (EC) 1907/2006 requires that the explosive properties of the active ingredient should be determined.
A case may be made for non-submission of data if it can be shown that the components are not explosive.The purpose of this report is to evaluate the explosive potential of 2-sec-butyl-4,6-dinitrophenol.
Based on the evaluation, all structural alerts and experimental data indicate that 2-sec-butyl-4,6-dinitrophenol has the potential to possess explosive properties. The official Annex I classification of R44: Risk of explosion if heated under confinement

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
explosive

Additional information

The evaluation report was used as key information for this endpoint. The purpose of this report is to evaluate the explosive potential of the test substance. The report was given a reliability rating of 2, according to the criteria of Klimisch, 1997 as it was not conducted to GLP and no guideline was specified.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The official Annex I classification of R44: Risk of explosion if heated under confinement.
