Description of key information

Regarding explosive properties of 2,2-bis[[(2-ethyl-1-oxohexyl)oxy]methyl]propane-1,3-diyl bis(2-ethylhexanoate) (Hatcol 3346), a statement based on the molecular structure rather than a full study was considered sufficient to cover these endpoints. The substance is non explosive.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Based on structural features, none of the members of the category is explosive due to lack of chemically instable or highly energetic groups which might lead to an explosion.

 

Evaluation of the structural features of the members of the category revealed that none of their components contains any chemically instable or highly energetic groups that might lead to an explosion. Therefore, the members of the category, including EC# 230-743-8, are not expected to be explosive under the influence of flame or to be more sensitive to shock and friction than m-dinitrobenzene.

 

Since the members of the category are, based on structural features, not explosive, they are not classified.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the above mentioned result, classification according to the CLP Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 and the Dangerous Substance Directive 67/548/EC is not necessary.
