other: UN Transport Regulations test series 1 and 2.
GLP compliance:
yes
Parameter:
other: Explosive under influence of flame
Remarks on result:
negative (not further specified)

For safety reasons the sensitivity to impact and friction is tested in a preliminary test.

Preliminary Test

Impact sensitivity (3 (a)), impact energy 40 J: negative, none of the 6 trials led to any explosion and flames.

Friction sensitivity (3 (b)): negative, none of the 6 trials led to any explosion, crepitation and flames.

Main Test

1. Thermal sensitivity (E. 1)

The limiting diameter, i.e. the largest diameter of the orifice at which "explosion" occurs, is: < 1.0 mm.

Assessment of the result within the meaning of test E. l (related to Division 4.1): the effect of intensively heating the substance under high confinement is low.

Assessment of the result within the meaning of test 1(b): there is no effect from intensively heating the substance under high confinement ("-").

Assessment of the result within the meaning of test 2(b ): there is no violent effect from intensively heating the substance under high confinement ("-").

2. Time/Pressure Test CC. I; Test l(c); Test 2(c))

Assessment of the result within the meaning of test 1(c): the maximum pressure reached in any one test is less than 2070 kPa gauge. The substance does not show the ability to deflagrate ("-").

Assessment of the result within the meaning of test 2(c): the time for a pressure rise from 670 kPa to 2070 kPa is 30 ms or more or a pressure of 2070 kPa gauge is not reached. The substance shows slow or no deflagration ("-").

Interpretation of the results:

The test substance is not considered to exhibit a potential of explosiveness.

The result does not lead to a classification.

Interpretation of results:
other: non explosive according to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008)
Conclusions:
Non explosive.
Executive summary:

Method

Test substance was assessed for explosive properties, following EU method A.14. In particular, friction sensitivity, impact sensitivity and thermal sensitivity were examined in preliminary and main tests.

Results

In both preliminary and main tests, test substance did not show a potential for explosiveness.

Endpoint:
explosiveness
Type of information:
other: read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
Adequacy of study:
weight of evidence
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study without detailed documentation
Remarks:
The complete read across justification is detailed in section 13. Test substance is an isomer of the substance under registration; structural difference is not expected to significantly impact physicochemical properties. Source study has reliability 2: only limited information available from a migrated NONS file, as per Article 25(3) request.

Interpretation of results:
other: non explosive according to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008)
Conclusions:
Not explosive under the influence of a flame.
Less sensitive to shock than dinitrobenzene
Less sensitive to friction than dinitrobenzene.
