Administrative data

Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with explosive properties
Justification for type of information:
In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII, the explosive properties studies do not need to be conducted as there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the substances of the lithium salts of monocarboxylic acids C14-C22 category. According to the ECHA guidance (ECHA 2017), a substance or mixture is not classified as explosive when there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule. Examples of groups which may indicate explosive properties in organic materials are:
C-C unsaturation (e.g. acetylenes, acetylides, 1, 2-dienes);
C-Metal, N-Metal (e.g. Grignard reagents, organo-lithium compounds);
Contiguous nitrogen atoms (e.g. azides, aliphatic azo compounds, diazonium salts, hydrazines, sulphonylhydrazides);
Contiguous oxygen atoms (e.g. peroxides, ozonides);
N-O (e.g. hydroxyl amines, nitrates, nitro compounds, nitroso compounds, N-oxides, 1,2-oxazoles);
N-halogen (e.g. chloramines, fluoroamines);
O-halogen (e.g. chlorates, perchlorates, iodosyl compounds).
The substances in the lithium salts of monocarboxylic acids C14-C22 category do not contain any of the chemical groups listed above as associated with explosive properties.
