Reference
Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
Type of information:
other: expert judgement based on the evaluation of the molecular structure of the components of the substance and the oxygen balance
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
August 17, 2011 - January 5, 2012
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Based on the molecular structure of the components of the substance an expert statement rather than a full study is considered sufficient to cover this endpoint. EU and UN guidelines were considered to draw a conclusion.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: United Nations (UN), UN no. ST/SG/AC.10/11/Rev.5: Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Appendix 6: “Screening Procedures”, 2009
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.14 (Explosive properties)
Deviations:
no
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: UN no. ST/SG/AC.10/11/Rev.5: Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Part I: Classification Procedures, Test Methods and Criteria Relating to Explosives of Class 1, Section 13: “Test Series 3”, 2009
Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Key result
Parameter:
other: Explosiveness (not specified)
Remarks on result:
negative (not further specified)
Remarks:
(expert judgement based on the evaluation of the molecular structure of the components of the substance and the oxygen balance)

- The molecular structure of the components of the substance does not contain chemical groups which are associated with explosive properties.

- The oxygen balance of C18H35N2O4 was –231% and the oxygen balance of C20H36N2O6 was –208%, which is less than -200%. According to this, these components are considered to pose no risk for explodability.

- The other components, water and sodium chloride are also considered to pose no risk for explodability based on their structure.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The molecular structure of the components of the substance was evaluated for the presence or absence of chemical groups which are associated with explosive properties. As the molecular structure of the components of the substance does not contain chemical groups which are associated with explosive properties, the substance has no explosive properties.

Description of key information

The substance was considered to have no explosive properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Expert judgement based on the molecular structure of the components of the substance.

Justification for classification or non-classification

As the molecular structure of the components of the substance does not contain chemical groups which are associated with explosive properties, the substance has no explosive properties and therefore does not need to be classified for explosive properties in accordance with the CLP Regulation.
