Description of key information

A closely structure-related tar oil (Anthracene oil, anthracene paste, distillation lights, CAS no. 91995-17-4) is not highly flammable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The use of the surrogate tar oil,Anthracene oil, anthracene paste, distillation light, for read across to predict non-flammability of the target substance,Anthracene oil B(a)P < 50 ppm,is justified because of the high compositional congruence of key components (see Table) and in physico-chemical properties.

Comparison of composition of Anthracene oil B(a)P < 50 ppm (AOL) with Anthracene oil, anthracene paste, distillates light [AO residue]
