Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the EC A.21 guideline, a liquid substance is to be considered as an oxidizer when:

a) a 1:1 mixture, by mass, of the substance and cellulose spontaneously ignites; or

b) a 1:1 mixture, by mass, of the substance and cellulose exhibits a mean pressure rise time less than or equal to the mean pressure rise time of a 1:1 mixture, by mass, of 65% (w/w) aqueous nitric acid and cellulose.

The purity and composition of the test substance is shown in and Appendix II. None of the components of the test substance does contain groups that act as an oxidizing agent. The oxygen and halogen atoms that are present in the molecular structure of the test substance are chemically bonded to carbon or hydrogen.

In conclusion, bis(2-chloroethoxy) methane has no oxidizing properties.
