Description of key information

As confirmed by an expert statement, molecular structure of the test item without indicator groups suggesting explosive properties. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane (BMDBM) is considered to be not explosive as the molecule contains no alert groups, the calculated oxygen balance is below the limit set specified in the Guideline and DSC results show a heat of decomposition.

Justification for classification or non-classification

For the reasons summarized above, the test item is not to be classified as to its explosive properties.
