Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
25.10.2012-06.11.2012
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
comparable to guideline study
Justification for type of information:
Experimental test result performed using standard test guidelines
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
other: As mention below
Principles of method if other than guideline:
It is how easily substance can burn or ignite, causing fire or combustion by brief contact with an ignition source (such as a burning match)
GLP compliance:
no
Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material : Sodium 3-nitrobenzenesulphonate
- Molecular formula : C6H4NNaO5S

Key result
Test procedure:
ignition time on contact with air
Remarks:
Ignition on contact with air refers to either Pyrophoric solids or Pyrophoric liquids depending on physical state
Remarks on result:
no ignition on contact with air (not further specified)
Remarks:
Sodium 3-nitrobenzenesulphonate ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950 degC was brought in contact with it.
Interpretation of results:
non flammable
Conclusions:
From the experimental values of flammability, sodium 3-nitrobenzenesulphonate ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950 deg C was brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that sodium 3-nitrobenzenesulphonate is flammable only at high temperature of about 950 deg C. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, sodium 3-nitrobenzenesulphonate was considered non-flammable.
Executive summary:

From the experimental values of flammability, sodium 3-nitrobenzenesulphonate ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950 deg C was brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that sodium 3-nitrobenzenesulphonate is flammable only at high temperature of about 950 deg C. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, sodium 3-nitrobenzenesulphonate was considered non-flammable.

Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

From the experimental values of flammability, sodium 3-nitrobenzenesulphonate ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950 deg C was brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that sodium 3-nitrobenzenesulphonate is flammable only at high temperature of about 950 deg C. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, sodium 3-nitrobenzenesulphonate was considered non-flammable.

Justification for classification or non-classification

From the experimental values of flammability, sodium 3-nitrobenzenesulphonate ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of 950 deg C was brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that sodium 3-nitrobenzenesulphonate is flammable only at high temperature of about 950 deg C.
