Description of key information

The sample was not considered to be an explosive as there was no evidence of exothermic effects when the sample was tested by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) within the testing temperature range (i.e. the substance was tested up to 500°C, as reported in the OECD 102 study to determine the Melting Point of the substance). Further, the substance was found to be non explosive in an assessment of the explosive potential based on the structural composition of the substance.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

A study was conducted to determine the melting point of the registered substance; as part of this study the thermal behaviour of the study was investigated, in accordance with the recommendations of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria (5th Revised Edition). The explosive potential of the substance was determined during testing of the Melting Point of the substance in accordance with the OECD Guideline for Testing of Chemicals 102. The sample was not considered to be an explosive as there was no evidence of exothermic effects when the sample was tested by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) within the testing temperature range (i.e. the substance was tested up to 500°C, as reported in the OECD 102 study to determine the Melting Point of the substance). Further, the explosivity potential of the substance was determined via an assessment of the structure of the substance, along with the results of thermal analysis conducted on the substance. The substance was found to be non explosive.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The sample was not considered to be an explosive as there was no evidence of exothermic effects when the sample was tested by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) within the testing temperature range (i.e. the substance was tested up to 500°C, as reported in the OECD 102 study to determine the Melting Point of the substance).
