Oxidising properties:

Additional information

Based on inherent substance properties and based upon information submitted in relation to endpoints "Melting point / freezing point" and "Explosiveness".

Justification for classification or non-classification

By reference to the structural formula, it can be seen that the substance contains highly electronegative atoms of chlorine, however the fact that these elements are only bonded to carbon and/or hydrogen renders it unlikely that this will confer oxidising properties on the substance. Furthermore, in order for a substance to have oxidising properties, a stable reduced form of the substance would need to exist, which is considered to be unlikely.

Based upon information submitted in relation to A1 and A14 of Commission Directive 84/449/EEC and by analogy with similar existing chemicals, the evidence supports the contention that the substance is unlikely to possess oxidising properties. A derogation in respect of this test (Method A21) was requested and accepted by TCNES.
