Harmonised classification regarding physico-chemical hazards

For n-butylamine, a harmonised classification is available in Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP) Annex VI. The substance is classified as flammable liquid Cat. 2, H225.

Self-classification according to REGULATION (EC) No. 1272/2008 (CLP)

A full set of physico-chemical information is available with the essential parameters determined according to established testing guidelines. Classification issues are discussed in the relevant endpoint summaries in more detail. Here, only a brief summary is given:

 

Because of a flash point <23°C (-7.5 °C, see section 4.11) and an initial boiling point above 35°C (77 °C, see section 4.3), according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP Regulation) n-butylamine has to be classified as flammable liquid Cat. 2, H225

 

With regard to classification for self-reactiveness, according to CLP, Annex I, 2.8.4.2. "The classification procedures for self-reactive substances and mixtures need not be applied if:

(a) There are no chemical groups present in the molecule associated with explosive or self reactive properties. Examples of such groups are given in Tables A6.1 and A6.2 in Appendix 6 of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria (2).

This applies for the submission substance.

No other classification requirements do exist with regard to physical hazards.
