Description of key information

Additional information

OBSH is solid (crystalline) at room temperature. The melting point of OBSH could not be determined as OBSH decomposes at 155°C and above. The density of OBSH was reported as 1.52 g/cm3.

The particle size distribution of OBSH ranges between 14 and 17 microns when measured by coulter. The vapor pressure of OBSH could not be determined since the concentration in a trapping solution was below the detection limit. The limit value of 0.00000543 hPa was calculated based on the detection limit of HPLC. OBSH can therefore not be considered volatile.

The LogKow for OBSH was 0.08 when estimated by OECD QSAR Toolbox. Based on this, OBSH will mainly partition to the water phase. The water solubility was measured to 62.5 mg/l (obtained by OECD 105) and it can be concluded that OBSH is slightly soluble (0.1-100 mg/L).

OBSH was found to be non-flammable. Ignition temperature was established to 530 degrees celcius. OBSH was found to be explosive when shock treated by fall hammer. The explosivity was inversely related to purity, so OBSH with a purity of 91 to 97% is sensitive to shock, whereas no explosivity is observed for purities below 90%, neither when treated with shock, friction nor flame source.
